Life is full of surprises, but it’s not every day that you get showered with a surprise that looks like it is straight out of a fairy tale or that makes your biggest dream come true. Some surprises are truly unique experiences, and that’s what you will see in this next clip. Photographer Brian Skerry got this wonderful lifetime chance to live his dream. When this National Geographic photographer swam his way into the surreal encounter during an expedition to the Auckland Islands, he got to pursue his biggest dream which was to capture a whale on film.
However, he certainly had never predicted to get this close to the huge majestic animal. Brian managed to controlled himself and acted fast as the 45-foot whale swam curiously close to his assistant. He didn’t waste time and snapped some great pictures, immortalizing an absolutely rare rendezvous between man and marine animal on the bottom of the ocean floor.
Watch this video as Brian describes this unforgettable encounter in his own words. I was so amazed by it that if I hadn’t seen it, I don’t know if I would have believed it. All of this actually sounds so unbelievable, but it really did happen and this video is proof.
