Hallo Paul,
Prachtige foto, maar jammer dat we je waarschijnlijk een tijdje zullen moeten missen. Ik ben wel nieuwsgierig waar je naar toe gaat. Want wie weet welke schitterende opnames je daar weer kan maken.
De ijsberen staan er mooi op. Steken ook prachtig af tegen het wat blauwige ijs. De meeuw in de achtergrond geeft nog meer dynamiek aan de foto. Erg goede compositie.
Tot ziens en goede vaart,
Peter

Have a nice trip on this new ship, Paul. I really like this picture and think you are very lucky to travel all over and meet fauna and nature from all over the place. Travelling by sea is fantastic. I like the polar bears here, in a row, with the water and gulls at the back. Nice greyish light typical of grey snowy days. Thank you and good trip!

Hi Paul. You have a safe trip on your new ship and we will look forward to seeing you soon in 2009. You leave us with a fine picture from your hoilday with the family of bears. The young ones have there eyes on you . great compostion. well done Take care Nick..

Hallo Paul,
Heb deze al gezien op je site. Toch?:-)
En ik vond de foto heel geslaagd. Bijna een 'lieve' foto:-) van toch wel voor mensen 'gevaarlijke' dieren. Deze 3 op een rij blijft zonder meer bij...
In december ga ik er waarschijnlijk wat langere tijd eruit...
In ieder geval dit is een heel mooie 'gevoelige' plaat.
Goede reis en veel fotoplezier!
