You probably have seen those giant whales break out the water surface and destroy a whole fleet of ships in fantasy type movies. But for sure not much of you have seen it in real, have you? Well, there is a reason for them to put it in art. Because the way those massive fish come out of the water like small mountains appearing in the middle of sea is really fascinating.
It is fascinating as much as it is terrifying when it appears right next to your boat. That is exactly what happened to the fisherman on these photos which took by the photographer Douglas Craft. He was on a whale-watching boat on Monterey Bay little far from Californian coast trying to take some quality photos of those giant marine life. Clearly, he wasn’t planning on take a photo like this.
When they saw a stir on water surface, Douglas went below the deck to shoot from a porthole close to the waterline. That is what gave these photos this unique perspective of looking up at the whale. He must have hoping to take a peek at whatever coming out of the water.
He was stunned for a moment when he saw a giant humpback whale leaping out of the water like a giant rock. Only because of his experience in the field he quickly overcame the shock and took what happen to be the once-in-a-lifetime photograph.
Moreover, Douglas had help from a whale watcher Kate Cummings who managed to capture an awesome video of the scene which you can see below.
