Back from the Depths

Back from the Depths
Photograph by Norbert Rosing

With dinnertime over, a walrus ascends to rest on an ice floe and digest its meal. For underwater shots, photographer Norbert Rosing used a camera lens attached to a ten-foot (3-meter) pole, tripping the shutter from a boat. Walruses are protected by law, but an Inuit hunter is permitted to kill four walruses a year.
