Humpback Whale




Shane Keena

Water – Honorable Mention

Location: Ha’apai, Kingdom of Tonga

I had a couple of seconds to reset my focus points and switch to portrait orientation as this magnificent adult Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) slowly ascended to the surface in the sapphire blue waters off the coast of Ha’apai in the Kingdom of Tonga. After years of photographing these sentient creatures topside, getting to shoot them below the surface is unequivocally one of the most moving and life-changing experiences and hands down, this is one of my favorite whale photos I’ve ever captured. Image captured with a Canon EOS-5D3 in a Nauticam housing.
