Shooting the break

On 23 July 2017 an impressive Pacific swell pounded the coastline at Port Macquarie and Tacking Point's resident pod of bottlesnose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) came within useful camera range of the headland. Earlier in the week we saw up to 40 common bottlenose dolphins hunting schools of fish behind the surf zone and off the headland.

Previously I have been shooting still images of the Tacking Point dolphins. Overall, I have found the results unsatisfying; few of my images have captured the grace and energy of the species. This day I resorted to video.
