Sad story, good photography. What kind of whale would that be? Love the fisheye shots (I am a fisheye freak myself).

What a day indeed! I bet you never dreamed your day would be like this, when you woke up that morning! Some very nice shots, and photojournalism. I had a hard time with the last pic. I saw a boat and a ? Whale??

Good coverage on the days event. Beautiful area to photograph any time day or night. Is that a whale in your last shot?

Thanks for looking guys. Yeah I never imagined seeing that but it is not that uncommon for people to jump off the cliffs here. This was the second person that week to do so.

Just about a mile north of this spot another person jumped just a few days earlier. He lived though. You may have heard about that one. It was the restaurant owner who's wife has been missing since October 2009. They started zeroing in on him and he snapped and jumped. Then they disassembled his restaurant (which is on my block) looking for her body but, no luck.

Yes, the last shot is a whale and her calf. I watched them play for about a minute then they disappeared. These are grey whales on their way back to Alaska.

Wow! Now that's what I call photojournalism. Great job!

lomitamike,

Indeed a fascinating series from the real world. We see this kind of photography all too seldom

Thanks Ordo, Walter and Torgny.

I found out that it was a 30 y/o woman and the coroner determined it was a suicide.

Lord be it that they fear a lord or what ever get it straight life is life.... so the one whom lived did he confessed of killing his wife why would he jump unless he did something or they have hounded him to the point o f self destruction... If she is missing and the officials hound you near death would not you to try the easy way out of it under duress..... officials can be damaging....

He lived.

Our feeling is that he (the husband) did it. We've known them since the mid 90s and he really started acting strange after she went missing. Then within a couple of weeks his much younger girlfriend moved in. The sheriffs said after he woke up in the hospital he admitted he killed her but did not say where her body is.

Being that he was a extremely talented chef leave's a bad taste (pun intended) about what he could have done with her body.

She was a super nice lady. We miss her.

Found this in the Australian news.
