Ice is far and away my favorite photographic subject. I snapped this
image of broken up multi-year ice while everyone else was watching
the two polar bears that were circling the ship. There's something
about the pale bluish color that says to me "this is a cold,
harsh place." The geometry of the ice floes is also fascinating.
Wind and waves carve the broken floes into a myriad of shapes. Unfortunately,
this ice field was really the only photogenic one we encountered on
the whole trip...
