Early evening. Chukchi Sea. Polar she-bear walks on the huge ice floe and occasionally turns back at our icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov...

Well done Nikolay, nice colours. The bear seems to be very strong.
In august 2003, I was in Spitzberg ans we met a family of bears (the mother ans 2 little bears) on a floe. You can see many pictures here.

Un exploit d'avoir pu photographier cet animal très sauvage. La mise au point est particulièrement impeccable. J'aime aussi les jeux d'ombres sur la glace.

Wow, great shot of the bear. I like the visual frenzy of shadows and light mixed with the jumble of ice. That combined with the unique warm light makes this photo stand out to me, it looks like the sun was very low in the sky.

Beautiful light and perfect timing. I love these animals but have never seen them in the wild.
