I love dolphins. (1 of 5 posts in 5 days)

If you should know one thing about me, you should know that i love dolphins. When I was born, i was showered with stuffed dolphins instead of teddy bears. When I was around four to five years old, I decided to become a Miami Dolphins instead of a New York Giants fan like I should be because I thought the Dolphins logo was cute. Still a Dolphins fan today, haha!

I still love dolphins because of how cute and majestic they are.

On Friday, July 31, my family took a trip out to Atlantic City and went on a dolphin watching cruise! The cruise takes us out to the Atlantic City shore and we got to see dolphins in the wild. I was so excited because the only live dolphin I’ve seen were the ones living in aquariums a long time ago (probably running back 10 years).

Check the cruise out at this site! It was worth it 🙂 http://www.atlanticcitycruises.com/

I ran sat around that day with my Sony A57 APS-C DSLR, and a 75-300mm Sony zoom lens. These were my three best dolphin shots of that morning:

Dolphins (1 of 3)135mm  f/5.6  1/1250 sec  ISO 200Dolphins (2 of 3)135mm   f/5.6  1/2000 sec  ISO 200

Quit showing off!

Dolphins (3 of 3)135mm   f/5.6  1/2000 sec  ISO 200

Because it was so bright out that day, I could keep the ISO low for less noise and use a ridiculously quick shutter speed (reaching 1/2000 of a second) to snap a dolphin jumping out of the water. I would totally go again, so if anyone is interested in taking a trip out to AC to see dolphins, let me know 🙂
