A small boat is dwarfed in size when a giant humpback whale bursts out of the water just a few metres away. The colossal sea mammal - roughly 40 feet in length - performed a magnificent vertical breach in splashing distance of nearby spectators.

The whale created an explosion of water in its wake that glimmered off its surface in the midday sun. The photos were taken in the Indian Ocean, 3kms from the Reunion Island’s western coast.
