Look at Baffin Island!

Let's explore further...

Everywhere you look the view is on the scale of Yosemite, and realistically, twice the scale - Mount Thor (pictured above) is twice the height of Yosemite's El Capitan and is the longest vertical drop on Earth.

YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON THE STORY!

Haunting light

Light doesn't always need to be pink and fluffy and golden and like a fairytale (although it often is on Baffin). Sometimes the best way to tell the story of a place is when it's blanketed in frigid, flat, scary light. The arctic has a way of making a cloudy, midday scene just as beautiful as the most perfect golden hour shots, if nothing else by its contrast, it's counterpoint.

Arctic light paints granite slabs with light

In this photo and the one to the right you can get a good sense of the quality of midday light in the Arctic, I can't put my finger on it quite yet but it makes it much easier to find beautiful images at several different times of day.  I think part of it is the quality of atmosphere, its often thickened slightly with clouds that have been frozen mid-puff and are in the process of filtering out and blowing through vast empty space.
