    The moment pictured here, while underwater, feels like it has somehow captured a mystical creature in flight. No longer a whale in an ocean, but a being in the cosmos. The gliding position envokes a feeling of soaring, an atmosphere of wonder. The one tonne weight of the creature is forgotten. The magic of the ocean lifting her. The scattered light, reminiscent of fireflies or fairy lights, enhances the mystical feel of the image. I love how this photo makes me feel. Weightless, free, adrift

    I feel a lot of warmth and beauty in this image - it's as if the little calf is imitating what the mother is doing and enjoying the feeling of a weightless glide through the ocean - a lovely moment portraying the close and intimate relationships between humpback whales.
