Koen Hoekemeijer Profile picture If you're going to photograph you always have to make choices. Not only in terms of settings, etc., but of course also in terms of your choice of lens.

On this beautiful summer evening in northern Iceland, I had the noble idea to go on the water with a 400mm fixed lens for a change. Unfortunately, I can't zoom in or out with that lens and so I am entirely dependent on how close or far away we see the whales.

In this case I was unlucky, the whale was actually swimming just a few meters from the boat and so the tail and the golden water did not fit entirely in the frame. On the one hand I was disappointed because the light was so beautiful, but when I looked at the photo later I was not entirely dissatisfied. I think it is a kind of arti photo with that beautiful sunlight, the details in the drops that fall from the tail and in the whole the tail is still very recognizable. A stroke of luck by accident ;)

I hope that you also like this photo.

Lived in Amsterdam, but decided in 2018 to pursue his dreams. Currently lives and works in Tonga where he works for a whale snorkeling operator. Favorite are mainly wildlife photography with a great passion for whales and tigers, as well as photographing people and "life". Can wait hours for that one shot, and then wait another day for a better shot. Has a very long and extensive to-do list of places to visit ;-)! Thank you very much for your interest and who knows, maybe a work of mine will soon be hanging on your wall.
