Nature can provide experiences so humbling that in an instant, the world of phones, computers, highways and office blocks seems to fade. It is all too easy to become consumed by your our own little bubble. But seeing something as incredible as this pair of whales up close provides a powerful reminder that there is a magnificent world out there.
This footage captures a paddle boarder’s awesome encounter with a pair of whales off the coast of Esperance in Western Australia. Filmed by Jaimen Hudson, this incredible 4k aerial footage documents a truly impressive moment between a man and two rarely seen whales. From the water’s hue to the great mammals, not to mention the music selection, the ambience of this video is very soothing.
