I have lived and worked on boats for nearly four years. Traveling on open ocean with a view of water all around is delightfully punctuated by animal visitations. Some days, as many as 20 to 30 dolphins participate in an Olympic-level swimming race just ahead of the boat. This particular pair was part of a small group I photographed on a parallel crossing along the east coast from Newport, Rhode Island heading south to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Dolphins can be challenging to photograph. I laid across the deck on the bow and carefully placed my camera through a low slot to capture this angle just as this acrobatic pair leapt. There was something magical about watching their sleek bodies burst out of the water in a spray of white as they danced momentarily in the world above.
