  1. Light, breath, life. The way of the Polar Bear in her splendor in a challenging environment. I would be honored to have this hanging in our home.


  2. I love the light in this picture. It makes it so surreal and magical. The bear looks like he is imploring the gods for something. It would be fabulous next to my other print of yours. I hope that we will see such fantastic light on the polar bears next summer! 😍


  3. I love this photo, the colours are not what I would expect. And he looks like he’s thinking “I’m the King of the Castle”


  4. I love the color of the light in this photograph- not what you expect from the Arctic! The orange tones are so different from the usual cool blues and grays. Lovely photograph.
