Tony Wu blogs from Tonga: Week One with Humpbacks
Author: Tony Wu

This continued for the better part of an hour at least, until we decided that it was best to leave them alone, and we exited the water.


That has to be a difficult decision to make!

Hi everyone,

Things going well this week. Will update soon.

Quick answer re: lenses - all wide angle obviously. I'm on Canon, so 17-40mm and 15mm are primary ones I use, both with full frame.

Cheers,

Tony
