Holy Flower Power!!! Never ever in a million billion years would I have anticipated seeing flowers growing in Canada’s High Arctic, but as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow the arctic landscape is indeed capable of nurturing flower seed!
While most of the landscape I saw was barren rock, and well above the tree line, there were intense pockets of ‘lush vegetation’ and with it photographic inspiration. I’ve always enjoyed photographing flowers, but working angles all over these guys in the High Arctic was extra special. In what I would imagine to be among the most barren and inhospitable places to live on planet earth, life finds a way to sprout and shout a flair of resiliency and colour – if only for a few weeks of the year! Damn, I really do think it’s amazingly inspirational stuff…and I don’t have enough room to showcase them all!
