Canadian artist Vanessa Miller has captured the incomparable beauty of the Pacific coast during a spectacular sunset that sends fiery colour through the clouds and illuminates the mountains and coastline in the distance. The stillness is palpable when two orcas unexpectedly emerge from the glassy smooth water. Tiny waves ripple out as they cruise by, belying the size and power of the animals that are creating them. The day’s final light glistens on the orcas’ wet, streamlined bodies, revealing their signature white markings, and their distinctive dorsal fins—the tall upright triangular shape of a male, and the smaller backward curving form of a female.
