Yesterday concluded our photo venture with Alaska’s polar bears and it was a great day of viewing and a challenging day of photography. Winds that gusted to 50mph were sweeping across the coast blowing snow and salt spray. This in conjunction with the lens shake caused by such force made shooting difficult. However, I think everyone stole a few good shots in spite of that, as we had some great sights. Here is one capture of a sow polar bear as she paused on the frozen coast of the Beaufort Sea.
