Record-breaking shark breach caught on camera: 'The photo you dream of'

Discovery’s “Shark Week” returned Sunday, and Air Jaws: Ultimate Breach helped launch the annual tradition with shark experts competing anew to capture the best images of a great white shark breach.

The experts all used different methods for capturing a shark breach off the shores of Seal Island, South Africa. While one expert attempted to capture a night image, another used a drone camera to document their attempt. But it was Chris Fallows and his tow camera that captured the most spectacular breach.

The 15-foot breach was a new series record, and a monumental moment for Fallows. “The photo you dream of,” he said. “They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, that picture is worth a thousand breaches.”

Viewers at home were also amazed by the spectacle, as many took to Twitter to share their dismay.
