Great photo Jordan! The open ocean is the only place killer whales should be. I'd never pay to see them performing in captivity (lucky my country doesn't keep them) but i'd give anything to see them in the wild.Very lucky!

Minimalistic art is usually the most powerful, and this image fits into that category. This is a great photograph! Bravo Cool spotting too. How lucky you are to see an orca in the wild.

This is beautiful...
