Where?! Just a plane ride north to Baffin Island is the small city of Iqaluit. It is the government center of the immense Canadian territory, and it is surrounded by tundra stretching much further than I could ever hope to see, and then some.
The tundra vegetation is up to a couple feet thick in many places and ten thousand years old. Trees are at most a foot high. The colors of fall in the Arctic are impossible!
Rocks are also a formidable part of the landscape. They are laden with various colored minerals, lichen in psychedelic colors, and ground-hugging tundra, all of which together rival the finest colors New England has to offer. The opportunities for this photographer on the two visits I’ve had—thus far—are nothing short of astonishing.
