I traveled to photograph the humpback whales in the calving and breeding grounds off the coast of the Dominican Republic. Divers are required to maintain a certain distance from the whales at all times, but the whales can approach as close as they want to you. This particular whale came up from below for a breath of air right in front of me, giving me a full frame shot of its tail. Talk about being in the right place, at the right time.
