When flying and doing my aerial photography you get to see things in a different perspective.
One would think that the amount of flying I do would expose me to marine threatening occasions. Not so although this one did raise a shark alarm after we radio’d in to Surf Life Saving.
Other events from the sky that we kept our distance from was the birth of a whale on the south coast of NSW. We were en route to a shoot when we noticed a very large whale curving her body. We continued on to complete the shoot. On our return to base flying over the same are there was the mother whale with her new born (and a mess) right beside her. Beautiful.
