I just came across an awesome photographer, Paul Nicklen, and I wanted to quickly share this info with you guys/gals!! The photo that caught my attention was the one shown bellow (From a National Geographic’s expedition). It’s just amazing the work he’s done in the Arctic taking photos of these massive leopard seals! It’s so impressive to see them from up close like that! Make sure you check out the behind the shot video and his website to see more of these great photos! Here is a quick quote I took from his website:
My goal is to bridge the gap between scientific research and the public by producing stories for magazines such as National Geographic.
Now, for the shot, enjoy:
