MOVIE: a night with bears

Polar Bear mother and cubs

Back to the Arctic. As I already wrote in this post we spent a really nice night in Heleysundet, Spitsbergen. Spending a night on one of the most beautiful ships in the Arctic looking out over a mother Polar Bear with two cubs is a real privilege. The advantage of the Noorderlicht is that she has a shallow draft, so we can come quite close to the shore. Fortunately the bears picked the spot the closest to the vessel, so we all had first rang views on them. After taking pictures for a while, I started filming as well. Here the results, for me the nicest Polar Bear footage I’ve made so far. I hope you like it!
