This Photo Series Beautifully Captures Majestic Whales & Dolphins

For the past 25 years, British Photographer Christopher Swann has captured stunning shots of cetaceans like whales and dolphins, both beneath and above the surface of the ocean. Swann has become finely attuned to the behaviors of these majestic creatures. Doing so has enabled him to venture close to them for intimate shots.
 
 
"I love the beauty and perfection of the sea. Cetaceans epitomize that," Swann says, adding that "nothing is more perfect than any cetacean underwater, but whales are really special. To see animals so huge, yet so graceful, so at ease and at one with their surroundings is exquisite." Rightly so, just take a look at his stunning photo collection below.
