Dolphins in the Sound of Sleat
Huge pod of Dolphins off Skye
I was lucky enough to catch this shot on a boat trip from Armadale on Skye to Knoydart when I was on a photography course recently. I knew there was a huge pod of dolphins around in the Sound of Sleat at the time. They decided to come past and put on a show for us – it was amazing to see dolphins leaping across the full width of the Sound. Estimates I’ve seen said there are up to 200 dolphins in the pod. We spent 10 or 15 minutes enjoying watching them leaping around the boat. There were plenty of cameras out! It proved surprisingly hard to catch them as they jump, though, but I was pleased with this photo.
