A new post for Darkcember 1. I like trying night scenes; often polar bears on the winter ice pack. Some day I’ll get it just right. This one is pretty good. A peaceful moment in the long polar night. A Polar Bear rests at the edge of an open area in the pack ice.The Northern Lights glow in the distance; bright stars twinkle overhead.

As always, I can not emphasize enough that Polar Bear could be extinct in the wild by the end of this century, if not well before.  Contact Polar Bears International (see links below), or other conservation organizations to help prevent this.
