Nothing is more beautiful than a Killer Whale surfacing as the lighting at sunset sparkles off the mist from his blowhole while highlighting his shiny black and white body off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia. With two thirds of its body shining in the lighting, the Killer Whale will continue on its swim as he appears to have his mind made up on his next destination.
In the backdrop, the sunset lighting remains on sections of the forested coastline, preparing for darkness to arrive, while the Killer Whale continues on his journey. Whether it is sunrise, daylight, sunset or night, a Killer Whale is always out for a swim, except for the moments in which he will stop and take a nap on the surface of the water.
