Eye to Eye

Getaway (South Africa) - - PHOTOGRAPHY -

Ev­ery year, hump­back whales mi­grate along the west coast of South Africa to feed on krill. The wa­ter vis­i­bil­ity is not great, but when the whales are not feed­ing they are very so­cial and don’t mind com­ing close. At this mo­ment, there were two whales around us, lift­ing their heads out the wa­ter, rolling over and even nudg­ing me with their pec­toral fins.
