Humpback Whale Surfacing
This was a "pinpoint moment" in my life. When this humpback whale surfaced near our zodiac, I was so excited, I could feel my heart pounding in my chest. It's at a moment like this when you hope that everything you ever learned about photography and your equipment snap into place so you can capture the image. There was no second chance. This magnificent humpback whale looked like nothing I had imagined. When I downloaded the image, I was able to take a good look at it and I still didn't quite understand what I was looking at on it's face. It looked liked he had a large rubber cog in the middle of his head. When I returned home, I searched for other photographs of humpback whales and have not come across anything like this one.
