The Arctic Hare

An arctic hare patrols the lake-side hill slope in Blomsterbukten, Kaiser Franz Joseph Fjord, Greenland. The lake behind has a pinkish hue, due to algae in the water. This is one of the hares I spent a silent, comforting 25 minutes with up a hill after they'd been scared off by an over-eager hiker - read more about the story at https://plus.google.com/u/1/+AlistairKnock/posts/WkoYuWNfS2E

Basecamp

Just after New Year's 2007, we had the opportunity to camp overnight on the Antarctica peninsula, and this is the spot we chose - Dorian Bay. Temperatures weren't too bad: minus 5 or so during the "night", but what a night - in January in Antarctica, it's daylight all the time, affording midnight walks closer to the gentoo penguin colony which is just visible in the centre. We saw some difficult scenes - very young gentoos being hounded by adults, seemingly careless or aggressive parents, and tiny baby penguins who couldn't survive the cold. There was a lot going on in this peaceful bay, and moods changed by the hour as the light shifted, and your mind tried to take it all in.

Ptarmigan

A ptarmigan rests on rocks in Hekla Havn, Scoresby Sund, Greenland - just moments before being chased away by a hungry arctic fox, who - fortunately for the bird - was a little too immature for a successful hunt in broad daylight.
