Ogilvies and Arctic Circle

We got to the Arctic circle just before sunset. Let's just say there was a bit of zoom involved, but it was well worth it.

The Ogilvies are the next range north of leaving Tombstone. They're interesting, in a bleak sort of way. This is part of the view where we stopped on the way up, and back, where the birds helped us with the left overs.

I'm working on a giga-pixel image of this where if works out like I hope it will be huge and you'll see every crack in the rock.

Neil and Kelly.

Els and David.

A scenic valley.


You can see why I say it's a bleak sort of beauty.

Converted to B&W to bring up the contrasts. Not so happy about the sky, but doing anything to it made it worse.

This raven was watching us carefully, knowing there was food, but it was just too close for comfort. We moved off a bit and it moved in.

Here are Katie, Kelly, and Susan.

Our guide Sandra. (Awesome!)

Gunther.

Susan, looking for the sunset in the tundra.

The panorama looking east. I have to admit, this is not at all what I pictured the Arctic Circle to look like. It was shirtsleeve weather, though it started cooling down after dark.

Some guys that happened to be there with us.
