Description

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 sunning along the surface slowly floated right up to me, enabling me to capture a full frame shot.
