Lance Kinney
Avila Beach, CA
Nikon D40
Nikkor 18-55/f3.5-5.6G
RRS Gear:
BH-55 PCLR ballhead
BD40-L L-plate
ISO 200
1/320 sec

“RRS equipment used was BH-55 PCLR Ballhead on a monopod and a BD40-L L-Plate on the Nikon D40. I used this camera/lens setup because I bought it for $50 on CraigsList and was not worried if I lost it overboard. I was in a kayak for this image and thought I could get dumped out of the kayak by the whale. The whale actually went right below my kayak before this shot and rubbed the bottom of the kayak as he went underneath; I thought I was going to be swimming back to the beach!!”

    Monopod in a kayak? Were you in a double?
