Stun­ning Nikon wildlife shots

NPhoto - - FRONT PAGE - Ole J Liod­den, Nor­way Nikon D5, 16-35mm f/4, 1/1250 sec, f/10, ISO800

This pho­to­graph of a po­lar bear on drift ice was shot at a lat­i­tude of 82° north. The an­i­mal had caught a seal and was just fin­ish­ing its meal. Us­ing a two-and-a-half me­tre pole-cam sys­tem and a screen, I was able to com­pose the im­age I had in mind – a po­lar bear in its harsh en­vi­ron­ment of water and ice. Doc­u­ment­ing this habi­tat and point­ing out the ef­fects of cli­mate change is im­por­tant to me as a pho­tog­ra­pher.
