Seal encounter

I found this shot while editing my days work.
I hadn’t noticed the Seal jumping out of the water directly under Emirates Team New Zealand’s AC45 while I was shooting.

A seal gets a bit of a fright as Emirates Team New Zealand foils overhead while testing in their surrogate America's Cup  catamaran on the Waitamata Harbour. 29/11/2016

 

They must have given the the little guy a hell of a fright, whizzing over head at 30+ knots.
He was very lucky not to be a metre either side or he could have been collected by the port Rudder or the Starboard foil.

The New Zealand Herald liked the shot so much they used it on the cover and on page seven and on their web site.cc161201-001If you would like a print or you’d like to publish the shot in an editorial context, the file can be purchased and downloaded directly from my site at this link.
