Journey to Churchill

I find using b&w with the polar bears when they are in the water manages to pick up the bubbles of air that is immediately noticeable if one leaves the image in the original color.

at the same time this bear had simply crashed out right in front of where I was standing

I always enjoy these bear series Jan, especially the underwater ones.

this was last Sunday and the bears were more interested in being outside in the sunshine than in their indoor pool

On one morning visit during a recent week there were a number of students with cameras taking pictures of the bears with this one snacking on fish being dropped from the roof of the display.

I liked the ghost like feel created by the b&w treatment.

I just marvel how graceful these creatures can be in the water when one realizes just how big and weighty they actually are.
