I was looking through Anette Mossbacher’s portfolio the other day for inspiration and came across this image. Jealousy ripped through me like a knife.
First I was jealous that she was able to see such an amazing moment. I mean, a white polar bear snuggled up on top of black rocks underneath a full moon! What are the chances of that? One in a million? Two?
After the first wave of jealousy hit me, the second, even more powerful than the first, gripped me good. Not only did she see it but she nailed the photo!
I did a little digging and according to an interview I read, she and a few other photographers were sharing a zodiac, forcing her to stand up to keep their lenses out of the image.
So lets recap: Not only did the stars align to place a white polar bear on black rocks underneath a full moon in front of her, she managed to land the shot while floating in a boat…In the dark. I can’t.
It’s a gorgeous image.
I think I’ve said enough.
