'Fire-breathing' whale is optical illusion

4 posts in this topic

Like some dragon from the deep, a whale rises majestically to the surface and spouts a huge ball of fire from his blowhole.

Of course this stunning image is really nothing more than an optical illusion as sunlight is refracted through the jet of moist air creating a orange glow.

Amateur photographer Mark Turner spent days watching the whales in Petersburg, Alaska, waiting for the moment to get that perfect shot.
