The Whale Man

And HERE is an interesting BBC bit on a guy named Duncan Murrell, who for years got into a kayak up in Alaska, paddled out to sea, searched out full-sized Humpback Whales, and took great close-up photos of them, all the while being unable to afford taking even one spill into those frigid waters, when his lens curtain would have been closed shut for good. Pretty cool! -- taking pictures with one hand and paddling with the other. In his talk below, he tells us what was involved.
