Polar bear cubs ”Chaos” and ”Echo”, Svalbard. ❄️ The frozen Arctic Ocean. Ice from near and away. Old sea ice and new. Huge blocks of ancient glacier ice in different shapes. When all these elements unite in the cold of an autumn storm as the waters freeze, the most beautiful landscape is created. Me and @melissa_schaefer can’t wait to be back in a couple of months. Last winter we were very lucky, and were able to spend a lot of time with a couple of mothers with cubs of the year. One thing we’re hoping for now is to encounter these families again. One-year-old cubs, full of courage and energy, are often great to work with.
