The Land of Rock and Ice

Another image from last year’s few days of exploration in Auyuittuq National Park. As one travels the desolate, dramatic valleys of Baffin Island in the winter, it is hard to believe that this place ever gets green at any time of year, for all that is to be seen is made of either rock or ice. Available colours are limited to all shades of great and blue. The wind is relentless and temperatures are frigid. Yet Auyuittuq in the winter retains a kind of unexplainable charm. This image  was taken below the towers of Mount Northumbria in the southern part of the park. Auyuittuq National Park, Nunavut, Canada.

This image is available as a print.
