About one hour after a late Fall sunrise, sunlight infuses these two backlit humpback whale blows with a white hot light. When the wind is calm, whale blows hang in the air, a truly beautiful sight, particularly when illuminated by the sun.
Looking out across the fjord where these humpbacks were feeding, our vessel’s Mate Dave remarked that it looked like a watery version of Yellowstone National Park (USA) with all the little “smoking geysers” soaring into the cold morning air, an apt description.
