Polar Bears and Ice Bergs Captured

Polar Bears, Ice Bergs & Arctic Nature on Photo Prints

 

When it comes to artwork, there are thousands of choices that homeowners can make their selection from. From the geometric photo prints that have been so popular over recent years to typography decals, every homeowner can ensure that their home is as unique as the individuals living in it.

However, there is one choice of artwork that is sure to delight, amaze, and inspire every taste and preference: photographs of nature and wildlife at their best, polar bears. For those looking to introduce a touch of natural beauty to their home decor, the incredible options available from Anette Mossbacher can make a truly stunning addition to any home.

Polar Bears a Rare Protected Species 

Polar bears are one of the rarest sights in nature for two notable reasons. The first is one of accessibility; due to the chosen habitat of the polar bear, they are simply a sight that few people will have the chance to see. Polar bears tend to only live wild in the remote, polar regions, which few people ever have the chance to visit. Secondly, polar bears are a rare, protected species that are struggling for survival against issues such as hunting and climate change. Due to this combination of an extreme natural habitat and threats to the population, polar bears are primarily only accessible to the general public via photographic imagery.

Polar Bears Photographs as Artwork

What imagery it is, though! Anette Mossbacher has managed to capture truly incredible images of polar bears in their natural habitat, and these photographs can be printed and used as artwork. These wonderful images were primarily taken in Norway / Svalbard, also called Spitsbergen, where polar bears live naturally among the wild elements they call home. The austere beauty of the landscape juxtaposes perfectly with the soft, gentle appearance of the stars of the image, creating a beautiful overall picture that would complement any home.

Arctic Wildlife & Landscape Photo Prints

Speaking of the landscape, the majority of the Arctic wildlife photo prints available feature polar bears in various poses on a background of icebergs. These icebergs may look terrifying to us, but they are the natural home of these incredible creatures, and offer an extra dimension that any images of polar bears taken in zoo locations cannot hope to replicate. This is nature at its very best, unspoilt an wild, and Anette’s images have preserved these moments in time.

There are a range of photo prints to discover, from close up images that primarily focus on the bear itself to more distant images that take in the entire landscape. Photo prints are also available that include the moon in the image; helping to bring together another natural element in an image that will draw gasps of admiration from anyone who sees it. The keen eye of an experienced photographer such as Mossbacher is able to pick out the moments that should be preserved in time, allowing for a wonderful range that is only possible thanks to the expertise of the person behind the lens.

About the Ilulissat Icefjord, Disko Bay Area in Greenland

The Disko Bay area is situated on the west coast of Greenland, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle. We will primarily focus on two locations in this area:  Ilulissat Icefjord and Disko Island.

Ilulissat features the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ilulissat Icefjord. This Icefjord is one of the few glaciers through which the Greenland icecap reaches the sea. It annually calves over 35 km3 of ice. The combination of huge icebergs, beautiful soft light and clear skies makes for a dramatic and awe-inspiring natural phenomenon.

The landscape of Disko Island was created by volcanic activity and is therefore characterized by basalt hills. It features an interesting coastline with black beaches, columnar basalt rock formations and beautiful waterfalls. The island also has unique lush vegetation, with beautiful autumn colors, that cannot be found elsewhere in Greenland.

About the Ilulissat & Disko Bay Greenland Photography Tour

We will explore Disko Bay and Ilulissat Icefjord area on foot, by boat and by helicopter.

In and around Ilulissat we will:

      • hike to multiple locations to shoot the colorful village and the icebergs from different perspectives under varying light conditions

      • sail in between the icebergs on a private boat to capture them from a different angle

      • fly around with a helicopter to experience the vast landscape of Greenland and the UNESCO Icefjord from above

On Disko Island we will:

      • explore a spectacular area with basalt rosettes, arches and (sea) stacks as well as lush vegetation

      • hike along a river to a gorgeous area with waterfalls

      • visit a black beach featuring growlers (small remainders of the icebergs)

 

Johan and myself will be available to teach you, answer your questions, offer guidance and assist you with your photographic needs. In addition to the in-the-field time, we will provide presentations and workshops to help you get the best of this Greenland Photography Tour.
