Classic Polar Bear

Classic Polar Bear, Svalbard, Norway

Before I start publishing a lot of the other wildlife images from this trip and some amazing other Polar Bear photos, I thought I would tease with one that is just a classic pose.  This Polar bear let us photograph her for almost two hours.  She was on a fresh kill.  It was one of the best two hours I have ever spent shooting.  I’ll publish more images over the coming days.

On The Way Home

Beautiful Iceberg, 24 hours of light, Svalbard, Norway

Beautiful Iceberg, 24 hours of light, Svalbard, Norway

I am now in Oslo, Norway about to start the second leg of my journey back to home to Indianapolis. I have been away for 3 weeks and 16 of those days have been at sea leading two amazing photo workshops in the Arctic region of Svlabard, Norway.  This was my second trip to Svalbard and it won’t be my last.  I got to share this trip with some amazing people and take so many amazing images.  We have polar bear pictures and one of them was on a  kill.  Walrus and Arctic fox.  We shot an Ice Wall that is 100’s of kilometers longs with ware falls at just the right light.  We shot a bird cliff where I have never seen so many birds.  So, over the coming weeks you’ll find a ton of images here on a daily basis, plus give em a few weeks and I’ll have a trip log of this trip.  I am home for a few weeks before leading a workshop in the Palouse.  So, let’s start out with a classic Iceberg shot.  Funny to all dressed up in winter gear in July.

First Svalbard Trip

The First Svalbard Workshop Group Photo Made On An Ice Floe In The Arctic Ocean, by Peter Cox

For the last 8 days I have cruising onboard the Malmo a small ship in the Arctic region of Svalbard photographing landscapes and wildlife with an amazingly great 12 passengers.  I’ll have more to report in August on my return but did want to share our group photo made on an ice floe in the middle of the Arctic Ocean north of Svalbard.

Leaving On A Big Jet Plane and Not So Big Boat

Miners Cabin In Svalbard, Luxury Accommodations

I’m leaving today to go as far north as possible, Svalbard, Norway. I’ll be leading 2 back to back Rockhopper Workshop tours into the Polar ice and Svalbard area to photograph Polar Bears, Reindeer, Arctic Fox and other wildlife plus some great landscapes including some amazing glaciers. I won’t be back until July 31st and will have no internet. I’ll definitely suffer internet withdrawal but I should be OK. If we do get any signal I’ll put up a post. Otherwise see you back here on the 31st.  Maybe I’ll even find Santa Claus.

Cypress Trees Tuscany

Tuscany Cypress Trees

Tuscany Cypress Trees

Yes this shot is pretty iconic but I like it and wanted to share it.  These are the famous Cypress Trees in Tuscany.  As you are diving down the road you’ll always find a few cars pulled off at this location shooting these trees.  The key is getting good light and a good sky.  I have shot this location in complete fog, sunrise and sunset.  Each time I come away with some nice images.  This is just a nice feel good spot.

Magical Bryce

Bryce National PArk

Bryce National PArk

Bryce National PArk is a rather small park but certainly offers up some spectacular sights.  As with all National Parks I visit, I love the beauty of them but as a photographer I get frustrated with the clichéd feeling of pictures.  Certainly it is great to be able to take a photo from the same location many famous landscape photographers have made their images.  So, when I find myself shooting at the locations I do everything I can to get something different.  Something that is from a new angle, with a different lens or different lighting.  If I can walk away with a different but still recognizable image then I have accomplished part of my mission. This image was made at Bryce but done with a long lens and isolates a certain part of the Hoodoos.  Light also played a factor in this image giving the hillside I was shooting a very special glow.
