What we're used to seeing whenever the BBC launches on one of its epic explorations of the natural world is moving pictures. But as well as training film cameras at their subects, from the largest mountains and glaciers to the smallest organisms, the hardy modern-day adventurers armed with their phenomenal hi-tech kit also train still cameras at everything they encounter.

The result, thanks to Chadden Hunter, Fredi Devas, Vanessa Berlowitz, Hugh Miller, Jason Roberts and Robert Pitman - who are variously camera operators, producers and directors of Frozen Planet - is a collection of moving pictures of a different kind. theartsdesk celebrates their work here in a gallery of spectacular photographs, some still and quiet, others which convulse with geological or mammalian action.
