Here are six stunning images from the north country in the Arctic. From polar bears to permafrost to unreal sunsets, the Arctic provides exhilarating experiences for all captured in photos forever. The diversity portrayed is dynamic and truly unique to that region. Similar to the wild feel of Churchill, as we travel further north the surprises are never-ending and unpredictable. Light plays such a role in these images and each one has some aspect that distinguishes it from others. Looking forward to discovering more incredible shots in the coming months. Enjoy!
These two captivating images from Nunavut embrace the feel of the region so much. The emptiness of the openness of the Arctic is unmatched and soothes the soul when you look deep into the landscape. The gateway to the Arctic, Churchill, is just the frontier of this wide open and wild land and sea. A trip to this region of the planet will truly restore one’s love of nature and wildlife! Enjoy.
These three photos from the far north highlight the vastness and mystery of the Arctic and the smallness of a human within the endless landscape.Solitude and quietness are aspects of this land that endure through the ages. This is what draws so many to this magical place…the feeling of being alone and away from all the distractions of feeling and thought.
Churchill is the gateway to the Arctic with the iconic wildlife symbols of this region in the mighty polar bears and ethereal beluga whales gliding effortlessly through the frigid waters of the Hudson Bay. The empty spaces are highlighted with flashes of other wildlife such as migrating birds and Arctic and Red foxes, insects and boreal chorus frogs all softened with an amazing myriad of wildflowers throughout the short summer season. There truly is no place other like the Arctic and sub – Arctic…another world of treasures to be discovered!
This beautiful and iconic photo of an Inuit hunter in the far north evokes memories of another time. Time seems to stand still in the Arctic although modern ways are starting to creep in. Still, the lure of this untamed land is the feeling of true free-living and wide open landscapes filled with roaming wildlife. Hopefully, we can protect this last frontier for all future generations!
This weeks photo shows how thick the ice can get way up north in the Arctic. This fishing hole will be used to lower nets into the water in order to maximize fish captured. What a different and unique way of life in Iqalugasukvik!
