Humpback whale

In December, in the fjords of northern Norway, not far from Tromso, the sun does not rise above the horizon so twilight is the best you can hope for.  If the sky is cloudless, the photographer is in luck, otherwise you may as well be shooting in the dark.  These humpbacks are hunting the herring which occupy these waters before spawning in early spring.
