This lovely lady was wandering along the shores of Hudson Bay near Churchill, Canada when we spotted her from our Polar Rover. We quickly backed to her position - and she decided it was time to lay down and take a break!

She would occasionally look around, check us out, lay her head down, look the other way, and so forth. So, we’d wait on the back of the Polar Rover (in -30F windchill) and wait till she looked around. Sometimes the action was fast, most of the time it was just hanging out trying to keep your fingers from freezing.

At any rate, what a privilege to spend time with such an amazing animal. In this photo she looked directly at me for a precious few seconds – and that was all it took!

BTW – no matter how cute she looks, keep in mind she’s relentlessly working out ways to get to you! Polar Bears have zero fear of humans and will attempt to make you into a meal if given the opportunity.

But hey, she’s still cute!

About Our Prints....

We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.

Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:

Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.


Warranty

Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


Signature

All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).


Delivery

Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


Discounts

We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!

    Great shot and a great reminder that we’re not always at the top of the food chain!
