I've used a snippet from the shipping forecast to create the whirlpool sometimes associated with the Kraken. It is describing strong winds that could escalate to storm 10. If I'm correct that is as bad as it gets!
For the eagle eyed you will notice I've concentrated on the expanse of sea between Norway, Iceland and the Shetlands. My sister often sees whales around Fair Isle so I decided to include them especially because of their singing. The Viking ship is unsurprisingly in the shipping forecast area Viking!
I wanted to capture the threat of the sea and the Kraken lurking in the expanse of water between Iceland and Norway seemed to represent this well.
