A humpback whale explodes out of the water in very close proximity. This is part of the fun of whale watching; one never knows exactly where humpback whales will rocket out of the sea.
Hot off the press! The new Alaskan Humpback Whale calendar!
The following short video represents why I adore humpback whales. Please forgive my humble, awkward attempts to create video footage of the whales. I think I need a proper HD video camera plus a non-rocking boat in addition to videographraphy lessons. Next time I’ll stick to a DSLR but in the meantime, please enjoy this tribute to my favorite big beasties of the deep.
