In August of 2017, I flew 1,000 miles directly north of Montreal to the very top of Quebec Canada to the Nunavik Territory where there are no roads except within Inuit villages, to go camping on an uninhabited island with 7 people I'd never met before, in search of polar bears, musk ox, bearded seals and icebergs. We saw these in their natural habitat and so much more. It was an incredible experience I will never forget.

Our campsite (5 Cabelas double wall tents, a quickly slapped together outhouse and an un-insulated cabin) was on the north end of this island. Because of the very limited latrine situation, the guides requested the men on the trip not use the outhouse for #1, so we all found our favorite isolated location close by. I was so impressed with the 4 women on this trip, two of which were 73. None complained about the outhouse at all.

I found a path down through the rocky boulders along the north coast where no one could see me. 

On the last day, after a fierce wind storm the day before blew away the cloud cover . It was a beautiful clear day. I woke up early that morning anticipating this and when I got down along the coast I was treated to this scene.

I shot this at 5:50 AM. Capturing this image was a true gift. 

More images from this amazing adventure can be seen on my gallery on this website.

Any of these images, especially my Pop Up Seal, the Polar Bear and Musk Ox images, the Iceberg images, or any of the serene landscape images would all make stunning wall art at any size.

Let me know if this or any other images inspire you and I will get you size and pricing options in either Framed Prints or on HD Metal with or without a frame.
