Arctic Photography

I woke up to find a very large polar bear asleep in a snow drift outside my window. This was my first morning in Churchill, Canada, and all through the previous night a blizzard had raged, shaking our walls and rattling our nerves. By morning, however, all was calm. I was so surprised to see this massive polar bear curled up in the snow that I completely ignored my camera. Instead of taking photos, I sat up and watched the sleeping bear — and felt happy. I was happy to be in this land of ice and snow, happy to realize that I hadn’t travelled halfway around the world for nothing — and especially happy that a polar bear trusted humans enough to nap right alongside us.

That was the start of a week filled with magic. I happily shot thousands of pictures trying to capture that magic. I hope you enjoy these images.

  1. India, these photos are breathtaking! What an incredible experience you must have had. I’m so glad you got to see the northern lights too. I was in Churchill in March a few years ago … northern lights but no polar bears. Also on my Churchill wish list is kayaking with beluga whales. So much fascinating wildlife and natural beauty in this isolated spot.

    • Thank you so much, Kathleen! Yes, Churchill is a very special place (I love that there’s no road access) and kayaking with beluga whales would be an incredible experience. Thanks for writing!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
