Whales Photographed Hunting under Northern Lights in Norway

12.10.2015

The operator of the Norwegian state television (NRK) managed to capture on video just two amazing phenomena of nature. He witnessed a group of humpback whales chasing herring, illuminated by flashes of the Northern Lights.

Unique shots were filmed off the coast of Kvaleya or Whale Island, near Tromso, by accident - during testing camera in complete darkness. As a rule, to see the northern lights or to meet the humpback whales one has to spend long hours waiting, but this time the operator was absolutely lucky.
