The internet went into a frenzy when a photograph of a breaching shark was released in August 2020. The image known as The Pearl, was taken by photographic artist Chris Fallows. (Photo Credit: Chrisfallows.com)
This photo effortlessly catches the scene of a shark breaching the sea’s surface. A breach is the term used for when a whale or shark ‘jumps’ out of the water and into the air momentarily. This particular photo is thought to have captured the highest recorded shark breach ever – at a massive 15ft (4.5m) above the waves.
