Photographer Jaimen Hudson was filming off the coast of Western Australian, when he came across something you don’t see every day: two whales closing in on a paddle boarder. Hudson had come down to the beach specifically because he had heard there were whales in the area, but he got more than he bargain for here.
The footage is peaceful, almost serene, and the paddle boarder, David Price, takes it all very much in stride, which is not something I think I would be able to do.
“There was one time when the whales lifted their heads up looked up over Pricey’s board, they were so inquisitive and wanted to know what he was,” Hudson said. “I don’t think it was dangerous, the whales moved to where he was and the whole time they were very slow moving and peaceful.”
