"An image that I had always dreamed of was to capture a white shark in mid-flight coming straight toward me in full battle cry, showing just what these animals are really capable of," photographer Chris Fallows said. "On this particular day. ... we had spent nearly an hour towing our decoy with no success, and the sea conditions were worsening. As we were towing through one of my favorite areas, it suddenly happened. ... To this day we have never again seen a similar breach."
