Orcas are the feisty and the wild animal of the sea. But undeniably they are also very beautiful creatures. When the sun is setting their black and white skin contemplates the goldish atmosphere. Jumping in the splashing water up and down they make one of a marvel scene.
One photographer actually turned this description I made into a reality. Mary Parkhill photographs the killer whales and the sunsets, then she blends them into the perfect composition. Maneuvering with the orca’s anatomy, she makes the orcas the center of the show. The photographer captures the shoot while the nose or the tale of the orcas is peaking out of the water, and the sun is setting gracefully giving it the golden background.
The photographer stated in one of her interviews that Orcas inspire her because of their sheer size. Crawling in their natural habitat and their ability to amaze her. Although Parkhill is based in Pennsylvania when the summer comes she uses this time to explore the inspirational landscape of Alaska. Turning her passion into witnessing the Orca’s sensation into iconic images.
You wouldn’t want anything else but to have one of her photographs hanging on the wall. The sunset photos are alone very dream but combined with Orcas in it, is what makes it extra special. Now go ahead and please your eyes and soul with these beautiful captures below.
