Orca Whales: A Breath Of Air

Orca Whale Photo From, July 2003.
Before using our pictures, please review our usage policy.


Photograph Notes: This small group of whales was literally just circling around, probably feeding, for at least 15 minutes no more than 40-50 yards off the shore. I've always admired the professional photos that show the breath exhaled from whales as they come to the surface but I couldn't figure out how they made the exhalation so apparent. Then, I took this picture about an hour before sunset almost looking into the sun and it was obvious that the sun backlit the spray in the exhalation.
