Arctic Alien

One of best parts of 2011 for me was ski touring on Baffin Island. 5 days of bliss (albeit cold bliss) in big, empty Auyuittuq National Park. The grand peak in this image is Mount Thor, which has the Earth’s greatest purely vertical drop at 1,250m. An impressive sight so say the least. Thanks for stopping by. I will be featuring mostly images from a recent trip to Nepal over the next weeks, interspersed with the odd shot from the Canadian Rockies and the High Arctic. Auyuittuq National Park, Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada.
