I’m going over my Operation Musashi journal from this winter, and I came across this little excerpt, which made me laugh out loud. Thought I’d share. :)
The other day, I was looking at a screen of some sort (I don’t remember which screen), and I exclaimed “Enhance!” and then chuckled. I don’t remember who I was with, but she was really confused and didn’t think it was funny.
“Luke would have thought it was funny.” I said.
Last night, Luke was watching me work on my images. I zoomed in to check something out, and he exclaimed, “Enhance!”
It was awesome.
Sea Shepherd crew in a Zodiac inflatable boat pursue Japanese factory whaling ship, the Nisshin Maru, through New Zealand territorial waters north of the Ross Sea off Antarctica on Monday, Feb. 2. 2009. The Nisshin used water cannons to keep Sea Shepherd boats at bay. Sea Shepherd engaged the ship, along with two harpoon vessels from the Japanese whaling fleet – the Yushin Maru No. 1 and Yushin Maru No. 3, as part of Operation Musashi, its 2008-2009 campaign to end what it deems to be illegal whaling operations in Antarctic waters.

Go, Steve! You nailed this shot (and I’m totally missing the action). Look at that glassy water. We never had conditions like that on the 1st leg! Full article here, with more pictures.
There’s also a video of the confrontation, which has been posted on Sea Shepherd’s website.

I figured I could post this despite the Animal Planet confidentially agreement, since it’s already been used in media all around the world.
