How to put into words what you see?
Superpods are difficult to describe, it’s a experience of a live time a event which will stimulate your senses, spark your deepest emotions and amaze your apparent knowledge and experience you may have about Whales and the marine environment.
First you search. A view hours we drive around looking for clues, a distant blow, an distinguish smell, than you find the right current and most important krill. Once on track the anxiety rises than in the far distance you see more than one blow, you know you found it. Still your mind is telling you there are hundreds of whales about and we covered many many miles by sea and not found them, how is that possible…
Than you smell. A strong and potent rotten smell.
Than you know they are here.
The vessel is coming closer, you start realizing this is a big pod, how is it possible to be so invisible for so long for so many whales.
Than we arrive at the place of the gentle giants, 2 separated pods with each about 200 to 300 individuals feeding on krill.
Now the next challenge arises how in the world to put on picture on film what you see? How?
It is impossible to actually document fully how beautiful, powerful, sound filled these gentle giants hunt and communicate unless you actually here.
Jean Tresfon flying by and documenting from the sky is a different angel which actually give you a different picture, but it is on its own not the full picture either. The sound, the smell, the action is the most amazing animal behavior Ive experienced in my entire life!
