Russia - Chukchi Sea
This small island in the Chukchi Sea is best known for it's remarkable concentration of Polar Bears. When the ice melts the bears need a safe haven to wait out the summer. The bears may be hungry during these months but the foxes and owls are not, because they have the Lemmings. In fact the entire ecology of the island is driven by these little creatures and their ability to survive in the Arctic tundra.
Huge thanks to Heritage Expeditions for getting me on the shop to shoot and experience the Russian Arctic.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
All photography on this site by Ewen Bell
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
