Photography in higher latitudes!

August 2008
How could you possibly spend a better summers day than to wander in the Valley of the Flowers on Ammassalik Island in Greenland? The answer of course is not only to stop and smell the flowers, but to stop and photograph them as well. Nice form Robert!

At these high latitudes the golden hour for photography can come quite late. Here is a glimpse of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) just before midnight off the stern of the National Geographic Explorer.

Even our Videographer got into the action. Kevin, you look so intent!

Of course photography in the summer here can come with its own special challenges. Puffins and terns are not the only "birds" out in force in this area, as Jen demonstrates!
But the quiet and solitude can make for a relaxing and enjoying afternoon composing shots. While this area is not a target-rich wildlife spot, fun images can be made for those who look!
