Fin whale in Boston

I am in Boston, what to do…. I have a plan of taking pictures of animals on this trip, so I have spent my day on a whale cruise outside Boston, and here I met this “little” fellow, a Finn whale, the second largest creature that have ever roamed this very earth. Quite impressive.

Picture of the day: A view from above

It is a quite lovely day here in Northern Norway, and I went on a short hike to get a good vantage point overlooking the my hometown of Brønnøysund, and its two most famous mountains. Torghatten on the far left, and Ramtind on the far right. Shot with a drone at about 100 meter above sea level.

Picture of the day: The whaling station of Grytviken

This is the old , retired whaling station of Grytviken, South Georgia. I guess this was the largest, and most efficient of the old stations down here. It was left in the fifties, and it serves here as a great piece of history. The picture shows only a small part of the operation, but you get a little image of the massive scale of the operation.

Picture of the day: The blue continent

No trip to the Arctic or Antarctica is without ice and icebergs, and the share might of this magnificent creations is just awe-inspiring. This is shot just of shore on one of the landings in the impressive continent, and I have to admit, that bright blue color just takes my breath away.
