Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Details (Polar Bear)


We’re just recently back from a photography trip to Svalbard, Norway – up above the Arctic circle and in search of Polar Bears (and other creatures of the North).  We had great experiences with some of the Bears including one that spent several hours in our vicinity.  Of course we all took bunches of images of the great bear as she went through her daily activities.  In editing one of the photos, I started looking at an extreme close up and liked the detailed effect of her face against the white of the snowy background .  Its pretty unusual to get that intimate a view of a major predator but I’m glad to share this one with you.

    Welcome back. This is another quality shot. What make and model did you use? Do you use Photoshop? I also wondered if the sun set past 10pm up there. Working with Old Faithful 🙂

    • Hi Allison! I used a Fuji XPro-2 that I rented – along with a Fuji 100-400 lens. In the Arctic the sun never really set – it just about got to the horizon and then went up again 🙂

      Hope OF treats you well!
