I captured this paddle boarder just off the coast of Laguna Beach last weekend. Because of the quiet surf, this is a very popular place to enjoy this California pastime.

Interestingly enough, this area is also a favorite feeding stop for the enormous blue whale.  As I was watching this guy gently pass by my shoreline position, I noticed a blue whale breeching about 100 yards from his position.  

What an amazing sight!

I thought I might as well include a few additional shots from the day.  Enjoy.

No photography genius here!  This is strictly a point, shoot, and upload project – no post production.
