  1. Shooting under the ice of the Arctic can be (to say the least) exciting and dangerous!

    Mind you it also gives me a (new) warm feeling for my (heated pool at home!


    So from the ice at the top of the world... (What there is Left!!)

    A BIG wave to the Nikon Cafe.....

  2. Wow, what clarity!! No silting out up there, eh? :smile:
  3. Very cool Doug. I just read the Antarctic is having record cold temps with waves freezing in mid air. Crazy.
  4. Yikes...that is eerie! Looking down at the endless depths below would freak me out.

    Wow! That's when I'd buy a full-face mask for scuba diving, hehe.
  8. WOW! What awsome and beautiful shots! Dunno why you'd wanna dive in that kind of water or weather, but thanks for sharing with us! I'm totally amazed for sure!
  9. Thanks everyone....

    The dive program is a big part of our project as it allows the science teams to get a look at the interaction of light and ice with the ocean.
  10. Wow Wow Wow!!

    Sooooooo cool!

  15. Thanks everyone....
    Creating images at the top of the world is always fun but a ton of work.
    At the end of the day I really end up with a hole new respect for the people who work and in this type of area

  17. The dive program we run is science in nature so we are most interested in the under-side of the ice. So as far as going deep..... we really don't.
