Whale shark encounter in Papua West

This image represents my meeting with the whale sharks in West Papua last september. Here, in Teluk Cenderawasih National Park, you can swim with these beautiful animals, which are continually approaching the fishing platforms and surround you with their slow and impressive motion. The experience leaves you breathless.
