Professional Photographer Captures Magical Photos Of Orcas Basking In A Sunset (27 Pics)




In the oceans’ inky depths lurk one of the largest animals on Earth. What animals, you might ask? Well, more than 40 species of whale spend their lives beneath the waves, surfacing only to breathe.

Interestingly enough, the more we learn about whales, the more complex they appear to be. Scientists at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa have discovered, for example, that their huge brains have a built-in heating system to ensure they function properly in cold seas. We also know that whales have a large repertoire of sounds, which can vary according to geographical location.

However, today we’d like to show you the magnificent and almost surreal pictures of whales taken during the sunset by the professional photographer Mary Parkhill.

“Photography has always been a passion, fueled by curiosity of the world around us.

My inspiration comes from Alaska… nature & wildlife. The fresh, crisp air, rugged mountains, and the beautiful moments that only nature can give us.”
