Amazing photo among finalists in prestigious photo contest

Amazing photo among finalists in prestigious photo contest
Norwegian photographer and researcher Audun Rikardsen shows a situation that has never before been captured in a single photo. It took him one year to get it.

Now the photo is praised worldwide and is already among the final images in the most prestigious nature photo contest "Wildlife Photographer of the Year." Of 50,000 candidates, Rikardsen's photograph is among the 100 finalists.

- Just getting through to the 100 finalists is a tremendous recognition I'm very proud, he says to FBFI.

The impressive photograph was taken during the herring fishing outside Tromsø in the late autumn of 2015 and shows the boat «Meløyfjord» of Bodø, and a Killer whale following the trawl to the surface.

- Several of your pictures, and perhaps especially this one, are almost too good to be true. Are you sometimes accused of cheating?

- I cannot deny that sometimes I am accused of cheating and manipulation, but I can guarantee that it is not the case. Everything is what you see. It is often a lot of work and planning behind many of my photos, and therefore it was good to get it shown and confirmed in a TV documentary that was just aired on NRK. There you can also see exactly how this photo was both planned and taken, says Rikardsen.
