Another image from stunning Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island. As part of my preparation for this trip I had spent considerable time looking through images of the area. Doing so helps me conceptualize photographic possibilities and visualize the area before I arrive on location. 99% of the images I was able to find were taken during the summer however - I was going to have to go without much beta. Not knowing what winter looks like on Baffin Island turned out to be a blessing. Every time the valley took us around a corner I was blown away by the unfolding scenery and unexpected, wild ice formations. Often I stopped to photograph turquoise ice bulges such as this one. If you ever get the chance to head to Nunavut in winter and experience its wonderful solitude, do not hesitate.
