Hi Henning,
The photos I found most fascinating where the cliffs and rock formations
created during the centuries of earthquakes & erosions.
On many of my assignments to a number of arctic locations from East to west
and to the North Pole 1967. :-) 
So much of the land mass was amazing and eye catching. No question, it's
about as barren and void of ground growth of any land areas I've ever been
elsewhere on the planet.
Looks and sounds like it was a  great trip. I wouldn't mind one as a holiday
rather than an assignment! Makes shooting pictures far more relaxing when
there isn't the pressures of "work!" :-)
Truthfully even as an assignment "it" was never "WORK!" Merely varying
degrees of fun! And enjoying it all!

There are now 83 items in the 'Canadian Arctic 2016' album from our trip in
August, including bear pictures. We saw quite a bit of wildlife, but a lot
of it was fleeting or hard to identify unless you were watching carefully,
as a lot of it was at quite a distance. We saw a couple of bowhead wales,
some narwhal, walrusses, various seals, muskox as well as many of the
infamous 'muskrocks' which look very similar at great distance. Also a large
variety of birds.

Most of my wildlife shots were taken with the 100-400 Panasonic-Leica zoom
which was an excellent choice for this trip. My next most used lens was the
12-40/2.8 Olympus, then the 7-14 Panasonic and last, mostly because of
insufficient reach, the 40-150/2.0 Olympus. I took about 7500 shots on this
trip. A UV filter was kept over any lenses that were out when we were in the
zodiacs, and the equipment was rinsed off in the shower after any noticeable
salt water splashing. Everything worked perfectly.

Contrary to Africa, where I have taken full frame shots of lions with a 35mm
wideangle, I wouldn't try that on a polar bear.
