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.

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
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.
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.
