Dolphins photographed in the Agean Sea taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1

On a four-day sailing trip in the Aegean Sea between Turkey and Greece, I was lucky enough to spot a pod of dolphins and couldn’t wait to get my camera out! These images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and I’m really happy with the clarity of the pictures, especially when the dolphins were swimming under water. Even though the dolphins were really close to the boat I didn’t have much time to capture them as it was a pretty rare sighting so I had to be quick. I had my prime 75mm f1.8 lens (equivalent to 150mm on a 35mm camera) on for most of the time and then only had quick chance to swap to the wider lens 12 to 40mm f2.8 lens (equivalent to 24‑80mm on a 35mm camera). I was really pleased with the outcome and love the reflections against the smoothness of the water.
