Bear by abey79 Bear by abey79
A bear in the sunset. (Then again, it's pretty much sunset all day long in summer, at 80° latitude). Svalbard, 2009.


Other polar bears from the same trip:

Hi there!

I would definately like to try that kind of a trip! You're lucky! :)

To the shot:

I guess you used some fat zoom lens, cause being in a short distance with these guys is not really safe :D...

The composition is good enough, or I have to say that atleast it's not basic :). I know it's a pain to get a quality photo when youre running out of time, but in this case I would recommend comp. with bear much more on the right. But for sure it's very subjective :).

Colours are amazing in my opinion. The time right before sunset, is the time where colours are comming up, so it was a definately good choice to take it like that :).

I won't comment on the animal, cause it's kinda awesome, and I'm jelaous :D.

Good work out there!

Best regards,
Monty.
