Mt. Asgard, the Northern Delight

Taking photos in the Arctic, far up North or down there in the South corner of the Planet Earth brings a lot of pleasure. I have visited both extreme locations: Baffin Island up North, in the Canadian Arctic and Patagonia at the southern most end of South America). The light created by Sun that travels very low above the horizon can’t be compared with any other location. As long as you have some clouds on the sky, even mid day feels like a morning or evening. It was exactly the case with this photo. I took it about 4 hrs before the sunset. There wasn’t too much of a color on the sky, yet. Nevertheless, the thin layer of clouds diffused the light creating this pleasing golden glow. This added a little bit of a warm feeling to this land that never melts. Big, flat glaciers like Turner Glacier showed on this photo are often featureless.
