Rowing with sharks

sharks an 133

Wonderful sight on this mornings club rowing session,3 maybe 4 large basking sharks feeding just offshore from Troon harbour. Having spotted the dorsal fins and the bubbling waters created by large shoals of fry trying to escape becoming lunch,we managed to delicately row over to within five metres of one of these magnificent creatures. Camera phone sadly does not do them justice.
