Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) blowing creating rainbow refraction, Icy Strait, Southeast Alaska, USA.
The blows of the whales added another beautiful ephemeral dimension to observing and photographing them, although the fishy stench is so obnoxious, and I always tried to avoid any physical contact with their smelly breath that could leave an oily film on my lens. It was always very challenging, trying to capture the refraction in the breath because it is so ephemeral.
