Whales frolicking at the Keppels captured on camera

THEY say you are suppose to 'down tools' for the weekend to relax but one local photographer may consider ignoring that next time she goes out on the water.

Photographer Angela Mallinson was on a boat near the Keppel islands on Sunday when she spotted whales frolicking around the area.

Unfortunately, the only camera she had on her was the one in her phone.

After posting the images on the Central Queensland Fishing Facebook page, it was discovered that there were three boats (none where the one that Angela was in) chasing the whales on Sunday.
