Nor­we­gian photographer and Canon Am­bas­sador Audun Rikard­sen says that Canon L-se­ries lenses help him cap­ture the majesty of na­ture in his pho­to­graphs of whales dur­ing Nor­way’s po­lar night. “In the last few win­ters, hun­dreds of hump­back whales have ar­rived at Tromsø in North­ern Nor­way to feed on over­win­ter­ing her­ring. They come dur­ing the po­lar night, where there’s no sun above the hori­zon, mak­ing the light and the weather con­di­tions chal­leng­ing. The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is my favourite lens for pho­tograph­ing the whales dur­ing this pe­riod be­cause of its ro­bust­ness, large aper­ture and ac­cu­rate fo­cus dur­ing low-light con­di­tions. It al­ways de­liv­ers, even in the most chal­leng­ing of con­di­tions!”
