·         These photographs of a Risso’s Dolphin Grampus griseus swimming in St. Mount’s Bay on the southern coast of Cornwall were captured early in the morning. Fortunately, the surface of the sea was not too reflective against a hazy sky, often an issue when taking photographs into the sun. As the photographer has a natural tendency to drop his left hand when photographing subjects at sea, he was quite pleased to see that the horizon was horizontal in all bar one of these images! The third photograph has also been shown cropped and contrast-adjusted to illustrate the blunt nose and the rose thorn-shaped dorsal fin of this cetacean in greater detail.
