Orka’s in Noorse fjorden

De filmmaker Patrick Dykstra kon in november onderstaande beelden van een groep Orka’s maken in de fjorden in het noorden van Noorwegen.

The 36-year-old was able to capture incredible close-up shots of the whales in the freezing Arctic water – and also employed a drone to take stunning aerial views of the magnificent sea mammals. The Colorado-born adventurer was joined on the trip by German orca expert Marco Schulenburg, 40, who spends six months of every year following pod migrations. The pair filmed more than 100 killer whales on the expedition encountering family groups of five to ten – observing them playing, communicating and feeding on herring.
