Humpbacks in Monochrome

This image is part of a series created having spent 7 hours at sea each day over 8 days in Vava’u to look for humpback whales comfortable with human interaction. Showcasing the whale behaviours against a black backdrop, I hope to present the sheer elegance of these gentle giants.
