Photo Details

  • Title: Arctic Polar Bear Tracks
  • State/Province/Region (required): Alaska
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Deadhorse
  • Description: Traveling inside the Arctic Circle, I came across these tracks heading across the frozen waters of the Beaufort Sea towards a distance ice cap. These types of prints are very rare to see; as freezing temperatures prevent polar bears from pressing footsteps into the snow crusted ice, combined with strong winds that quickly fill them with drifting snow. After an exceptional calm day filled with sunshine, the ice warmed enough to allow these massive impressions. Compare them to the smaller prints alongside them of a Red Fox that seemed to be following the white bear at a safe distance looking for an easy meal of scrapes hopefully provided by the polar bear. It was an amazing site to behold as the natural blue ice spanned beneath long golden evening rays, casting a warm pink glow over the entire area. No filters were used.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: Sony DSC-HX200
