Arctic Ice Pack

 "Arctic Ice Pack"

Carol S Gee, MD

From the photographer: "This image was captured in the ice pack north

of Svalbard, an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean halfway between Norway

and the North Pole. The polar bear was spotted slowly ambling

towards our ship and paused to check us out. It was an

exciting privilege to see this magnificent animal in the wild."

Dr Gee is a retired physician from West Los Angeles Medical Center.

She enjoys looking through the lens—meditating

and breathing in nature's beauty.
