Whale Tail

Whale Tail
by Rodney Bursiel

I was in Fiji last year shooting surf photography at Cloud Break. When I realized Tonga, home to humpback whales, was just a two hour flight away I changed my travel plans and jumped over. I envisioned this exact shot, and I got it on my first day. I couldn't believe it. I was focusing on the mother whale when this calf came from behind and breached right beside me: a moment I will never forget.
