I love the water and the ocean and really enjoy diving. This picture just made my day. If I was the guy in the picture there is a possibility I’d be crapping my pants right about then but it would be sooo freaking cooool!
The story behind the picture… In 2009, cameraman Marco Queral captured some incredible photographs while diving with a 50 ft (15.25 m) female humpback whale in the South Pacific (near Hawaii). Queral has spent 20 years of his life photographing whales. He says they are “extremely intelligent, just like humans, they have their own mind and come with strong personalities.” The most famous image from the collection (shown above) shows Marco Queral reaching out to make contact with the giant whale. It was taken by one of Queral’s diving partners and went viral in 2009.
