Nikon International Calendar 2014

[31st December, 2013] I am happy to announce that one of my Polar Bear images has been selected to Nikon´s International Calendar 2014! The calendar will be circulated over 50 countries worldwide. The Polar Bear image adorns the February page of the calendar, and it is a great honor to be chosen as one of Nikon´s twelve disciples in 2014...

The image is taken from a Zodiak (rubber boat) on one of my great trips to Svalbard with WildPhoto Travel. The camera and lens I used was Nikon D3s and Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VR II handheld at 135mm.

I have not yet received the calendar my self, but I got this photo of the February page below taken by representative of Nikon Japan, Mr. Yukari Hashimoto.

The original image comes first, please enlarge and enjoy. This is a great start of 2014, happy New Year to you all!

Dear Arnfinn congratulations for a great achievement and brilliant picture. A pity we only get to see it for 28 days-my special wish for you for 2015 is that you'll get a picture for July with 31 days! Happy New Year - Kurt
