Swimming with the whale sharks of Donsol (5DII)

Some photos from my recent trip to Donsol, Sorsogon -- the unofficial whale shark capital of the world -- in the Philippines.

Whale shark interaction is supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but not in my case -- I have been going back to this town to swim with the biggest fish in the world. And every time, it's a totally different experience. Swimming with the gentle giants is truly an awe-inspiring experience (and tiring too).

Gear: 5D Mark II in an Ikelite housing, Canon 15mm FE

All on snorkel (Scuba is not allowed in Donsol).
