Photo: Tranquil Humpback Whale Spout British Columbia Coast

Tranquility at the finest, humpback whale spouting in Queen Charlotte Sound along the British Columbia Coast Mountains, Canada.

Another unique moment not many people can experience. After a busy day shooting bears, dolphins and killer whales on one of my wildlife photo tours we decided to stay out till dark. After the sun was set it got very peaceful on the water, there were no more boats around, not a ripple on the water and we watched this lonely humpback whale spouting in front of the British Columbia coastal mountains.

As we had the engine switched off we could hear his powerful blow after a long deep dive. After photographing whales for now almost 30 years, these are the moments I enjoy most! THESE are the moments I'm most thankful for.

After we were watching this humpback from a distance he decided to come for a visit and kept diving around the boat for almost 30 more minutes, we then had to leave him as it was getting dark,
