Polar Bear Watch

Taken during an autumn trek in the Arctic wilderness on Svalbard. During the night the company shares the duty of keeping a watch out for polar bears. Spending two hours alone in the dark cold night can sound bad but usually it's quite nice. Especially true if you are lucky and get to an Aurora light show during your turn.
