Spouting Off!

September 26, 2021

Perfect title, right?!
Motoring up the shore for the last week of trout fishing and saw this whale. Fished here many times, have only seen whales a few times and haven’t been able to get a shot until now. Not great but it’s a whale!

Nina Notes: They can be so hard to photograph, good for you!

Saw it!

July 7, 2021

I never believed this whale in Lake Superior stuff … until last week. We were up on top of Palisade Head and saw a group of people pointing. I pulled out my long lens and captured this image. If you need to see it to believe it, here’s proof!

Nina Notes: Nice photo Sally. It must have been exciting to be up high looking down on the whale. I've never seen one from that vantage point.

Big Spout!

We were all zen on Stony Point, taking in the massiveness of the lake and then there was a huge splash. The lake went calm and we thought that was it, but no. It surfaced and blew it’s top!

Nina Notes: How exciting!
