A whale watcher Kate Cummings and photographer Douglas Croft were out on the seas of Monterey Bay, California.
It was the salmon season when a lot of fishermen take their boats onto the water.
Its time also when humpback whale return to the bay to find food. The photographer and his friend wish to get some fantastic views of these cute whales as they breached.
When they spotted a whale breaching in the sea so they hurried below deck to get a better position. Kate based oh her instincts and experience she had a good feeling about the direction in which the whale was heading.
“Sometimes when whales breach multiple times, they’re also heading a specific direction when they’re underwater building momentum for the next breach,” she told Caters News. “I figured the next breach would be around the fisherman because the whale was heading that way and sure enough! Though I didn’t expect the whale and the boat to line up so perfectly.”
After a while, the great humpback whale burst through the water, and the boat of the fisherman was close.
Fortunately, kate captured the perfect perspective, which shows how massive the whale actually is.
“Since the boat is closer, it should look bigger, but the whale is huge,” Douglas said. “If I’d been the fisherman, I’d probably need some new underwear!”
