At first, it seemed as if the herring had chosen to swim to a new destination this year. The water of Kaldfjord lay calm. Only a few flocks of killer whales and some stray humpbacks could be seen cutting the surface. But about a week ago, the herring came back. The birds went crazy, and so did I :).
Today, on the third of advent, I and my friend Stian used the few hours of twilight to paddle out to search for whales in the arctic night. It felt as if we crashed an early X-mas party.
Unfortunately, GoPro doesn’t do a very good job capturing the extraordinary spectacle that was shown to us today. You have to take my screams for it.
