A few years ago I made my first journey to the Svalbard area in the Artic Circle. It was my first opportunity to photograph Polar Bears. And, it was an experience I won’t forget. I have been back several times and have loved photographing these incredible animals. The Polar Bear though is in trouble for numerous reason. I have spent time learning about this and making friends with a number of experts on the topic. This image I think tells a story. It expresses well what is happening. The bear is at the edge of the ice looking off and this symbolizes what the bears are facing. Shrinking ice packs and with it a challenge for them to survive. I call this image Polar Bear On The Edge. I think the bird at the top really adds to the image.
