Photo Of The Day By David Connel

Photo By David Connel

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Sunning Humpback Whale” by David Connel. Location: Silver Bank, Dominican Republic.

“I traveled to photograph the humpback whales in the calving and breeding grounds off the coast of the Dominican Republic,” explains Connel. “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.”

F6.3, 1/160 sec, ISO 640, 14mm
