Svalbard, Norway

Photographed on a cold blustery arctic day in Svalbard, Norway. After waiting patiently for a few hours behind the lens for this polar bear to wake from its slumber on a snow bank, he woke up and (of course) walked in the opposite direction from me. Feeling slightly defeated I snapped a few “courtesy frames” of the bear as he walked up and over the hill. It was later that night, when looking closer at the image in my camera, that I noticed the magic of the single black paw against the Arctic white landscape.
