>>> in the era of photoshopping we were suspicious this next image was too good to be true. after extensive checking by our team in southern california we learned a freelance photographer hired to take pictures for the tourism folks in santa cruz county got two humpback whales breaching next to a kayaker. they reentered the water slowly and the kayaker was fine. we can only alum the photographer and his client were pleased with the results.
