Hey Folks,

A quick post for while I’m gone; given the current weather most of the readers in the Lower 48 states are experiencing, this one might be somewhat apropos. A polar bear, sleeping in a snowstorm. See folks, it really isn’t that bad.

Polar bears are simply ridiculously photogenic. Even asleep, on a blanket of snow covered ground, and a foggy misty background, they simply look great. It’s a good thing though. Photographing polar bears, or grizzly bears, involves a lot of watching the bear sleep. And sleep. So it’s a nice experiment to see if we can come up with decent photos of the bears sleeping.

This one is one of my favorites, so far. I hope this guy’s wide awake right now and having a grand time on the ice, chasing seals and eating all that rich blubber. And with that said, I’m heading off to sleep for a while myself. And then to trundle round the mountains, and enjoy some time in Wrangell – St. Elias National Park.

Cheers
