Whales and Dolphins in the Bay of Biscay

What a privileged to watch, albeit from a distance, the whales and dolphins in the Bay of Biscay. On a recent crossing aboard the ferry to the UK, calm waters and glorious light meant that spotting these illusive creatures was a little easier.

Scanning the surface of the water, it is easy to misinterpret flotsam and jetsam as the dorsal fin of a whale or the the shadows of a dolphin pod as they glide just under the surface of the waves. The white water can often make it difficult to spot the expelled water from a whale's blow hole. Thankfully the tranquil waters were kind and I managed to get a few distant photographs.
