Land of the Midnight Sun

Midnight Sun, Barrow Alaska. Taken at 12:30 at night.

This is a shot looking out my hotel room window at the
sea ice on the Arctic Ocean.

Seals pop up through small holes to bask on top of the ice.
Polar bears roam the ice looking for the seals. They stalk them
much like a cat moving slowly while the seal is sleeping, then
freeze in place when the seal pops their head up to look
around. This continues until the polar bear, whose white fur
blends in with it's surroundings, is close enough to pounce on
the seal and eat it.
