A few years ago from the archives. I’d forgotten about this until I came across the original video while reviewing my catalog. All I had with me was a small point and shoot. The best camera is the one you have with you!
Out on a sail boat with some friends in Monterey Bay. A beautiful visitor came over to say hello. Grey and Humpback whales frequent the area but encounters like this, where the whale playfully bumps the boat are extremely rare. Winter in Monterey Bay is prime whale watching season.
