Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeanglia) sounding, Stephens Passage, Southeast Alaska, USA.
The unusual and dramatic lighting was created by a forest fire hundreds of miles away in the Yukon Territory. The smoky haze drifted across Southeast Alaska during a rare period of clear weather, intensified the lighting and created a glowing band of light along the horizon.
