This whale was cruising along at 15 feet deep for a while. All of a sudden it kicked twice with incredible force and breached 15 feet in front of me. I had the presence of mind to lift my camera out of the water and start pressing the shutter. The first image was blurry. This is the second.
This image can be seen at the Waterfront Restaurant in Maalaea Harbor when it re-opens later in May.
If unable to come to the Restaurant check out my online gallery.
