This week the Daily Post photo challenge is to share a photo of “something marked by its weight — or its air of weightlessness. Show us gravity at its most unforgiving, or most generous”.
I couldn’t resist a gallery (or two). The first set of photos were taken from the beach at Coral Bay, one day at sunset. We were treated to the most delightful show of snapper jumping out of the water. They kept doing it for about half an hour. Subsequently we’ve seen them jumping and flying again at that time of the day.
The second set of photos were taken from the ferry between Rottnest Island and Perth in late October (during whale migration season when the whales migrate south with their calves to the cooler waters).
The apparent weightlessness of these magnificent creatures is incredible. They defy gravity. In the last photo the ship (which happened to be in my viewfinder) also seems coincidentally weightless in the ocean.
The quality of the photos aren’t great as all of them involved quick snapping. There was no time to think about composition. I stood with camera pointing for a long time, ready to aim and shoot.
