OUT OF THE BLUE

There are certain moments in life where I just stop and think to myself, "is this real"? This was one of those days. I captured this photo of a pod of Spinner Dolphins, which I have done a hundred times before, but this was special. The clarity of the water, the shallow depth, the natural lighting that pierced the surface at that exact time of day was truly special. I'm always inspired to capture life in the ocean, especially Cetaceans living wild and free like these Hawaiian Spinners.
