Photographer's Note

From the deck of our expedition ship, I snapped this shot. The day was very foggy and cold. The sea was more icy than liquid. We were beyond the 81st parallel approximately 500 miles from the North Pole. I looked at the ice for hours as it fascinated me as much or more than the animals.

The true North Pole is composed of only ice. Its size increases in fall and winter months and retreats as the weather warms. As we neared the Pole, the sea changed from slushy ice to more solid ice, then to this look that I shot. Toward the north we saw solid ice.

The shot has been cropped and re-sized, as well as sharpened and brightened slightly.
