Breathtaking footage captures whales playing under northern lights
A photographer in Norway has captured some breathtaking images of humpback whales playing at night underneath the spectacular northern lights.
NRK photographer Harald Albrigtsen says he was testing a new Sony A7 camera Monday and Tuesday evening off the coast of Kvaløya (Whale Island) near Tromsø. The camera can capture images in very low-light conditions.

Albrigsten has made a name for himself for his images of the northern lights. Earlier this year he also captured footage of reindeer grazing under the lights.
