nice pictures. very interesting the links thanks. They still kill whales in Norway.
Slept once in a very old fishermen cabin in Norway (Henningsvear). Almost all the families there are hunting whales for centuries.
I have bin on whalesafari in the
Nordic sea there. Saw some Potfish, they are so beautifull when the are singing....
I hope for peacefull times for those lovely creatures.
