Magnificent Underwater Photos of the Humpback Whale

It’s not often that we get to see the magnificence of a humpback whale in up-close detail. In fact, the world below the surface of the sea is often quite a mystery. Photographer Tony Wu spends much of his time traveling around, seeking out adventures, and documenting incredible underwater displays of what Wu describes as many “charismatic marine mammals.”

The fearless photographer gets amazingly close to his subjects, capturing everything from humpback and sperm whales to playful little sea lions. Wu’s passion for the animals he gets to know is evident through his stunning photography as well as the extensive information that he offers on his website. His crisp, detailed photographs are the result of a challenging environment and Wu explains, “'It's a bit more complicated photographing in the water because your time is limited by the amount of air you carry and the time you can stay at a given depth without risking decompression sickness.” Included here are a collection featuring the humpback whale, images that Wu was able to collect during his travels to Tonga.
