Another side of the expedition

I selected these pictures to show another side of this expedition, aside from the polar bears, whales and birdlife, what does the ship, its crew and passengers look like through my lens?

Opportunities to walk on land are limited, so photographing from inside the vessel, I use features of the ship to frame my pictures; I wait by the windows or use doorways to frame the landscape outside. I play with the contrast between the human-made lines of the Lance and the natural lines of the landscape outside.

Scientists and sailors walk through the pictures and if I wait quietly for long enough, they ignore me and become part of the landscape.

The scientists watch for whales and I watch for scientists!
