Halloween seems like a good day to finally post one of the photos from my New Zealand trip in May. I know, it is time to share something from there! So here it is...And yes, these blue ones are glow worms. Happy Halloween to you all!

The Scent of a Storm Being in an amazing location with an enormous potential for interesting photos when the weather shows its ugly side can be discouraging if not depressing. When waiting for a sign of a clearing in the sky turns minutes into hours or even days, the mood darkens almost as quickly as the last touches of the light that bravely try to make their way through a thick blanket of clouds. Then, a clearing storm arrives bringing the most welcome change in aura. At first, it sets in quietly, almost as if it wanted to deceive its spectators. But the fragrance of its proximity can already be smelled by an attentive individual. And this is exactly when a photographic excitement quickly replaces the previous stage of apathy turning it into an almost intoxicating state of happiness. #allnatureshots #awesome_earthpix #baffinisland #digitalarmy #discoverearth #earthpix #enjoycanada #explorecanada #instagood #igs_america #igworldclub #ig_heartshot #ig_wildplace #instaworld_love #landscapesofinstagram #marvelshots #phototag_it #worldshotz #VentureOut#iglightshots#loves_mountains#nature#travel_shotz#earthofficial#natgeo#vega#tentree#parkscanada#natgeo#explorecanada#baffinbay#baffinisland

Arctic Summer This year I visited Baffin Island twice, about two weeks apart and this photo comes from my first trip over there in the mid of August. In the past years, I trekked on Baffin Island a bit later, when the fall was in its full bloom, or even when the winter was already spreading in the valleys and over the mountains. This time I saw a different, more summer-like Baffin Island, the one with patches of lush green grass, more plentiful rivers and longer days. It shocked me how much of a difference two weeks can make in the Arctic. But regardless of the season, the raw splendour of Mt. Thor (visible on the photo) keeps inspiring me and makes me think about future adventures on Baffin Island. Therefore, I will be returning there with my workshops in 2019. If you wish to be a part of this adventure, please contact me for more info: arturstanisz@gmail.com. #allnatureshots #awesome_earthpix #baffinisland #digitalarmy #discoverearth #earthpix #enjoycanada #explorecanada #instagood #igs_america #igworldclub #ig_heartshot #ig_wildplace #instaworld_love #landscapesofinstagram #marvelshots #phototag_it #worldshotz #VentureOut#iglightshots#loves_mountains#nature#travel_shotz#earthofficial#natgeo#vega#tentree#parkscanada#natgeo#explorecanada

Seeing Through This year, the photo of Mount Northumbria opens my post-Baffin Island 2018 Workshops photos presentation. After five years of workshops that I am fortunate to lead in this extraordinary location, I become more and more interested in featuring less known, yet absolutely beautiful Baffin Island mountains. Mt. Northumbria measures 1,661 m from its base to peak and likes to be hidden in the clouds. Fortunately, this year it unveiled its full beauty and allowed me to see through the clouds and capture its majestic shape. #allnatureshots #awesome_earthpix #baffinisland #digitalarmy #discoverearth #earthpix #enjoycanada #explorecanada #instagood #igs_america #igworldclub #ig_heartshot #ig_wildplace #instaworld_love #landscapesofinstagram #marvelshots #phototag_it #worldshotz #VentureOut#iglightshots#loves_mountains#nature#travel_shotz#earthofficial#natgeo#vega#tentree#parkscanada#natgeo#explorecanada

A Touch of Silence A busy and usually full of life mountain forest can easily become a temple of silence. When a fog suddenly engulfs trees allowing only a tiny pass-through for the light, the forest enters into a state of numbness. This sudden touch of silence that swallows up all noises brings a great opportunity for a photographer. It opens up a chance for experiencing a full spectrum of other senses: vision, smell and touch. Unexpectedly, when the hearing is taken out of the equation, the other senses become sharper and more reliable. This helps in isolating a frame that otherwise would be too busy to catch our eye. #outdoorphotographycanada #tentree #destinationearth #wilderness_culture #globalcapture #natgeotravel #natgeo #explorecanada #thephotosociety #bcmagazine

Lunar Spirits The transition between evening and the darkness of the night has special light properties. It is not dark yet but the daylight is vanishing quickly, and the spirits of the night are waking up. It was long after the sunset when I took this photo, but beautiful light kept me excited. The afterglow light was still strong enough to enhance the landscape, the sky was filled with colors, and my sensation started to thrive with the rising moon.

Strange Fellows Foggy conditions, like those in this photo, are usually very contemplating to me. All you can do is wait and watch until somewhere, something unveils. And most of the time you can’t tell what it might be until very last moment. Here in this photo, beautiful light finds its way through the thick layer of fog, reviling strange almost human-like creatures.#outdoorphotography #outdoorphotographycanada #tentree #destinationearth #wilderness_culture #globalcapture #natgeotravel #natgeo #explorecanada #thephotosociety #bcmagazine

Light Spectrum Normally, fog adds element and feeling of cold to the photo. But in this image, the fog combined with warm sunlight has an opposite effect. What do you think?

Unveiled. Distant peak slowly unveils from the thick cover of clouds and fog. With its appearance comes light and energy. Previously dark, cold and hostile aura suddenly sparks with brightness and warmth.#awesome_naturepix #discoverearth #enjoycanada #explorecanada #earthofficial #natgeo #tentree #worldshotz #marvelshots#nakedplanet #roamtheplanet #ig_masterpiece #ig_shots #ig_photooftheday #ig_worldclub

Highway Glacier When I was composing and taking this photograph, it was clear to me what I wanted it to be about. I wanted it to emphasize two most important components that characterize this landscape: rock and ice. I also wanted this photo to tell the story of how these two components have shaped this land by constantly colliding with each other. The slow and quiet but unimaginably strong glacier force was able to transform masses of rock into this beautiful and dramatic landscape.
