When he set out in his kayak, David Rogers’ intention was to photograph some fish and capture the sea’s beauty. Now, as the titan breached next to his canoe, he forgot all that. The only thing Rogers could do was hold on for dear life as the ocean shook with the giant’s might.
The day in question was June 16, 2018, when Rogers had an encounter he’ll never forget. But although he was fortunate enough to experience such an incredible event, it wasn’t the reason for his outing. Instead, he was after a completely different kettle of fish.
In fact, fish were exactly why civil engineer Rogers headed out into the ocean. The kayaker is a keen outdoorsman and photographer, and his goal that day was to do a little bit of both. To be more precise, Rogers wanted to capture aquatic life on camera.
