Challenge 920: Seafaring photographers
I took a short boat trip while in La Rochelle this summer, and was intrigued when the entire cohort of passengers turned to photograph the same scene. What could they have been looking at?

You can Google the waters around La Rochelle to find out, of course, or you could just use your overactive imaginations.

High res is here.

I prefer the word "fevered".

Nothing to see here... Just some dude surfing on the back of a whale while holding a shark!

That's a good idea, Frank, and puts a new perspective on the picture.

Re: Challenge 920: Seafaring photographers
Thanks Michael - other than that it is a difficult perspective without expanding the scene.
Time permitting I plan another entry later this week.

Having been to La Rochelle googling was unnecessary, but the second part of your briefing is where the fun starts! Do click to view full size please. Lot of work here.

Steve, is there going to be a big "reveal" after?

Yes, that's good David, nicely extended, which is what I am doing. And there's my old friend Ernst Stavro.

This croc shot was taken on the Daintree River not far from where Steve was on his quad bike recently in Challenge 918. A bit of surprise the small amount of turbulence the crocs creates with these leaps. The Daintree River has a population of about 70 adult crocodiles, the largest being the males at about 5 metres. The females reach about 3.5 metres, and there are many juveniles and hatchlings. https://www.lonelyplanet.com/articles/crocodile-encounters-australia

Nice to see Born2Run and Ben back!

Loyd I am impressed by the way you have moved the rays background and foreground so they really are among the people.

This is not great Photoshop but hopefully good for a giggle.

A most keen observation, to be honest, I didn't think anyone would notice. Gotta' love 'smoke and mirrors'.

In the 16th century La Rochelle was the home port of privateers who began a series of attacks of Spanish vessels returning from the West Indies 'relieving' them of their cargos.
