Whale watching is an uncertain exercise. Most of the time you’re straining your eyes for some sight of a whale on the horizon, but sometimes you hit the jackpot.
Canadian tourist Sandy Seliga hit the biggest of jackpots when she captured this stunning footage of a humpback whale breaching the waves during a whale-watching trip in the Bay of Fundy.
The water appears completely empty at first, but then the whale appears as if from nowhere, a majestic creature bursting out through the salt spray.
This is truly a dream moment for any whale watcher.
