Whale spout

We had some spouting humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) near our boat in Whale Channel, British Columbia, in nice light with the droplets from the spout catching the sun. The image was almost black and white as taken, so I converted it to full BW.
FYI; The Cetacae lab https://saveourseas.com/project/cetacealab/ on the west coast of Gil Island monitors all the whales in the area and has pictures on the wall of all of their tails and other identifying pictures. They are the ones that have the dog that points the way to whales by smelling their breath. You can hear their recording of whale songs here: http://forwhales.org/listen?layout=item
