Technically I saw all three while visiting St. John’s Newfoundland, Canada this week for work. The pictures and experience leave a bit to be desired though. The Puffins were great but my pictures, not so much.
I kept trying to catch them in flight with modest success.
Luckily my friend Dave had a huge zoom lense on him and he’s going to share his photos with me. In the meantime check these out. As long as you are quiet the boat can get very close and Puffins just sit and watch all the humans taking photos of them. I suppose it’s all very blase to them 😉
The whales were mere humps barely breaking the surface
When I really wanted to see this
The iceberg was an ice cube
As compared to some that have been known to travel here
I can’t complain though I got to travel here for free and it was a conference attended by two of my colleagues so I wasn’t here by myself relegated to hanging out in my hotel room.
I got to see much more of Newfoundland then I caught on camera (since the camera got left in the hotel for the second day of sight seeing). It’s a beautiful place to visit and if you go I’d highly recommend trying a whale and Puffin boat tour. As soon as someone spotted the whale the Captain turned the boat around and managed to get us right by the whales. It wasn’t his fault they were skimming the surface so they had to no need to show their tails.
I’ve posted 271 of the 450 photos that I took (mostly during the boat tour). The rest were deleted after my first review, a couple are actually really good
If you can sort through them all to find them 😉
