Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) blowing and sounding near sunset, Tenakee Inlet, Chichagaof Island, Southeast Alaska, USA.
This is a rare photo taken from a boat rather than from my kayak. I took it from the deck of a small catamaran owned by the postmaster at Tenakee Springs. It was always such a mesmerising sight watching the blows of the whales being illuminated by the sun when the sun was low in the sky. It was usually emphasised by the dark backdrop of the mountains.
