Gentle GiantsI was scuba diving on the south shore of Maui, Hawaii.
20 min into the dive a saw a big creature coming torch me,It kept getting bigger and bigger by the time they where close enough to identify them I realize I was run over by 7 whales the size of a bus,a competition pod, so close I could of touch them.
They where on a mission, so no much interaction just the eye contact for 3 or 4 seconds enough to make you feel small really small and at the same time the happiest human on earth.
This animals are so big and gentle their movements are calculated up to the smallest unit you can imagine, they pass by and left just the sandy bottom a little stirred.
I keept on my dive trying to process the event,so overwhelmed I try to understand my luck maybe 10 minutes went by I looked up and there they where coming back to me again this time I make the best I could of the situation and got some incredible images.
Its an encounter that will be in my brain for the rest of my life.
I been a photographer for the past 25 years,I have traveled to all places in this earth and never had an encounter like this.
And the season is just starting.
