Humpback Whales in Icy Strait

June 20, 2006

This evening after leaving Elfin Cove in Cross Sound we entered Icy Strait to find these Humpback Whales feeding together. The light was simply mesmerizing as we watched these animals sub-surface feed together. Time and again this little calf would be left out of the activities, only to splash and play away from the adults. Here in Southeast Alaska the sun doesn't sink until after 9:00PM and the "golden" light seems to last and last...perfect for photography!
