Wow,... this is absolutely incredible. Photographing the high arctic is one of my nature travel goals, and your images just make me want to go even more.
The wildlife work is beautiful, but I must admit that I'm drawn even more to the landscapes. There is something artistically other-worldly about the icy landscapes presented here.

Lovely stuff!
