Title: Wild Breach

Photographer: Graham Elliott

Location:  Sydney, Australia

Caption:   When the wind picks up it creates white tops on the waves and these, in addition to the larger wave, make it very difficult to spot whale ‘blows’. We’d had quite a bumpy trip on this particular morning and hadn’t seen any whales. We then had a call from another boat that had seen a breaching whale but had to get back to Sydney Harbour. We went south to where they were and would have gone right past this whale if it hadn’t breached.

No one knows why whales breach but I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t impressed when one of these huge animals jumps out of the water nearby. I had wedged myself into a corner of the boat so that I had both hands free to hold and operate my camera. As you might imagine, everything was moving out there.

I love this image as it’s one of the most dramatic breaches I’ve photographed. Having said that, I was very happy to get back to Sydney Harbour.
