Congratulations to eyelaser for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 11 votes - View Previous Winners


Just a few of the many many many images I was fortunate to get this past week.
An epic trip with my good friend and former WLPOY Don Gutoski to Churchill Manitoba to see the great white bear. The experience was amazing but behind the scenes there can be issues which include Noro Virus and a touch of frostbite. With temps hovering around -10 to -15F and wind chills down to -40F it requires good preparation to avoid losing digits and prominent facial features.
But, hey, the cold never bothered me anyway...
Eric

Eric, glad you survived the Noro virus and frost bite ! These images are jaw dropping , amazing and stunning.
The blue background is gorgeous. Is that background the sky or sea , or both? Your processing of the whites and tones is so very well done. Marvelous work

Great set of photos, I'm envious. Three trips to Svalbard and one sighting of mother and cub.

Well darn, another great set! I'm not sure I could handle the cold so I'm glad it was you rather than me, but you sure make it tempting!
YGMV!

Another amazing series, Eric! You sure got my vote! The way you handle the whites on the bears as they are ensconced in the snow is brilliant! Thanks for sharing.

Top notch images, Eric. The bears don't look cold. I'm not cold and you survived to present them to us. What's better than that.
