18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
What a surprise!

Friends paddled their Polynesian canoe - for the first time in modern history - and, suddenly, a humpback whale appears. I had the right time to take the photo and the whale went on its way. And the rowers certainly witnessed one of the greatest meetings of their lives. Luckily, I was there watching.
