Each year from July to October, Humpback whales frequent the waters of the South Pacific to mate and give birth. This calf leapt into the air and crashed down only inches in front of me. Rather than try to lift my camera out of the water to capture the breach above the surface, I wanted to capture the view from the whales' perspective underwater. The impact of a 3-tonne baby whale re-entering the water after such a leap was a heart-stopping experience.

من يوليو لغاية أكتوبر من كل عام، تتردد الحيتان الحدباء إلى مياه جنوب المحيط الهادئ للتكاثر والولادة. قفز صغير الحوت هذا فوق سطح المياه عائداً إليها ولم يبتعد عني سوى مسافة قصيرة. فبدلاً من أن أرفع الكاميرا لتصويره فوق سطح المياه، أردت التقاط المشهد من منظور الحيتان تحت سطح المياه. وقد كانت عودة صغير الحوت البالغ وزنه 3 أطنانٍ إلى المياه بعد هذه القفزة الهائلة تجربةً تخطف الأنفاس.
