Peering down into the inky, who knows how deep, black water beneath me I was beginning to question the merit of floating out here in a Norwegian fjord well after sunset. Still it’s warmer here in the water than in the icy wind above me.
Then suddenly a flash of whiteness snaps me out of my moribund reverie and I am wooting with orca joy again.
I have no idea if I can capture this beautiful creature in the darkness. Perhaps I’ll get lucky as he fades into the blackness below.
