"Dive" is an image that I had always wanted to capture, yet never believed that I would.
I often see images of whales without any context, just a breaching whale with the open ocean in the background. Don't get me wrong; these can be fantastic images. But my goal on a whale-watching tour in Húsavík was to capture an image of a whale with more context than the sea.
I was lucky to see dozens of whales diving, but none were positioned in front of distant mountains — either that, or they were too far away. The last whale I saw, though, made the perfect subject for a photo.
Gliding gently across the surface for several seconds, the whale looked to be in slow-motion as it dove. I stretched into the best possible position, framing the diving whale in front of stunning, snow-covered mountains. This was exactly the image I had in mind.
