We browsed off the coast of Alaska for some of the whales, and the first day brought us exactly zero shots — we saw no whales, and the weather was pretty horrible. Even in July, the temperature can be as low as 0 degrees with freezing rain and gusty winds. However, we got a bit of luck on the next day and had some shots of whales jumping. The cloudy skies and stormy sea made it for a pretty bland background.
