Here’s an image from my recent trip to the arctic to photograph polar bears. The light was great, and the landscape just swept away behind him. The more I shoot, the more these kinds of images seem to ring home for me.
There are a lot of places that are popular for polar bear photography nowadays, but few where you can grab a polar bear image with a massive mountain range in the background; and the infamous ANWR Section 1002 coastal plain in the foreground.
