Warming waters, plentiful bunker, lots of life, and a gentle northern wind to turn the ocean to glass made for a nice trip. The dorsal fins of lots of Hammerheads and a few Blue sharks could be seen slicing the clean surface.
location – a few miles out of Fire Island Inlet.
subjects – Hammerhead and Blue sharks
gear – Nikon D810, Tam 150-600mm; GoPro. (I really could have used a polarizing filter to cut through the water surface.)
Blue shark, entangled in rope. This blue was not boat shy, seemed attracted to the electronics in the GoPro.
On another note, please do not release balloons. They are making a mess of things. I filled a hatch without going out of my way, picking the ones in my path.
