Fantastic Frank! Your dolphin photos are just phenomenal. The sharks are pretty tasty too.

My main computer is still broken so mine are a bit delayed.

Hi Frank, I really like the shots which were taken on the reef. Some really nice composition on them. Did you release the trapped fish from the traps?

Cheers for showing

Stew

Finally finished my dolphin/shark gallery from the trip.

Again, the experience was unique and unforgettable.
I like Jim's trips because my edited images always somehow turn out to be different than previous trips, despite mostly working with the same subjects in the same area.
Enjoy the photos.

Frank


Wonderful pictures!!!! :)
a lot of stuff ...

Frank -- the Bahamian dolphins sure do seem easier to get to than the ones in your backyard, eh? :)

Thanks for all the :) feedback!

Bahamian dolphins are definitely easier to get close to than the spinners here in Hawaii.
Still hard to get head on though.
I was huffin’ and puffin’ just to keep up when they were barely moving their tail.
Really fun to photograph.

And yes, the trapped fish are enjoying their freedom again.

Cheers,

Frank

Thanks, Frank!

I'm not sure if I'm most impressed by your beautiful images, or by the speed with which you've posted your gallery...

... I've processed about 1/6 of my "keepers", and anticipate at least another week until I can post my version of the trip (despite the sneaky way I got in with a handful of images whilst everyone else was travelling home)!

Thank-you for sharing, and for a great trip.

Tim

Very impressive collection, Tim.

Especially your shot from Blue Heron Bridge - considering you were snorkelling!

I think this is my favourite:

Although there is some stiff competition from some of the dolphin group shots.

Apologies for being in so many of your dolphin shots - although my form is pretty decent in most!

Alex

p.s. You owe me an email, as I owe you money!

Nice shots Tim!
I really like TB25, TB63, HT 86, HT116, HT127, HT136, D 244, D247 and D272 as well as your blue heron bridge arrow crab shot.
Alex's inadvertent modeling is quite stylish. He's even somewhat color matched. Maybe we'll get him some more impressionable colors next time around.

Thanks for posting.

FWIW (and that may well be not a whole hell of a lot) my shots are up here.

Worth waiting for! There are some great shots: my favorite is the dolphin playing with the weed.

Thanks Tim - we played 'throw & catch the weed' for about 30 seconds until he figured that I was absolutely no challenge whatsoever and left in disgust.

Those are first class, Paul. Still not done mine!

Love that photo with the weed - I remember that dolphin bonding with you and playing with the weed, very clearly!
