The hopelessness of the long-distance dolphin snapper.

Ever since I started this blog, I’ve been hoping to get a shot of the dolphins who come through the bay in front of our house. My chance came yesterday morning, which was when I learned how damn hard it is to shoot them. First of all, they were inconsiderately farther out from our shore than usual. Then I realised that I couldn’t predict where they were going to surface, so I didn’t know where to be pointing the camera. And if I was lucky enough to fluke one in the viewfinder, I didn’t get a lot of time to react. So these are the best I was able to do.
