Polar Bears and Northern Lights - 2016 - Noella Ballenger Photography

Noella Ballenger Photography

To create, to share the treasures of our natural world and to share my vision with you... that is my goal. To have my photography inspire you to “see”… that is my joy!

Churchill is the southern most breeding ground for Polar Bears. Impregnated by fall, mother bears make a den and stay their after their babies are born in January. They bring the cubs out of the den by late February and begin their long trek to the Hudson Bay before the ice breaks. During this time Mother has not eaten.
