Ice Pillow

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
BetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day  
Ice Pillow
Ice Pillow
Taken in November 2006 when wife and I spent 10 days on the Tundra Buggy Lodge to view Polar Bears. I have recently had some heart rhythm problems, saw Cardiologist in San Antonio 12/5/17 and will have to see electrophysiologist (specialist in heart rhythm disturbances) in Jan 2018. Will be starting on $$$$$ expensive blood thinners very soon to prevent strokes. Have been a little busy lately and hope to catch up soon. Have Happy Holidays.

First of all Emile, I am sorry to hear about your health problems and hope that the blood thinners will work for you and help prevent any further problems. You take care of yourself my friend.
What a wonderful and amazing MT you have here with this polar bear Emile. They are such amazing creatures and I worry about them with the climate changes that are affecting their hunting grounds. What a beautiful look this is, the colors and details are astonishing. Love the clarity of the picture. Take care my friend.
