Entry Description

There are many facets of marine life that is at the mercy of the decisions we make. As such, the term 'On the Brink' holds a special meaning to me. In this picture, I was able to capture the moment just before a young humpback whale breaks through the surface of the water. The poignant moment, frozen in time, is symbolic to the beguilingly quiet crossroad of the ocean's fate.
