A gentle breeze, the glistening of the sun across the water & the snow...pretty much a perfect night to enjoy the outdoors (and some fishing). 🎣 
Exploring the tundra is always an adventure, and food for the soul. 💙☀️

This is an amazing project I am so excited to be a part of with @gndaskalova and @teamshrub (image from @teamshrub 🌱) Check out -The Hidden Arctic-
Link in bio!
"The planet is changing at an increasingly high pace, with the consequences of climate change reaching far across the Earth’s biomes. Perhaps nowhere is this more true than in the Arctic tundra, which is warming at around twice the rate of the rest of the planet. Our project will contribute to precisely quantifying ongoing and future biodiversity change across these unique yet threatened northern landscapes."

Good memories of Diving a flooded ice cave in Llangjokull Glacier, South West Iceland. An amazing dive that involved Super Jeeps and Snowmobiles just to get inside, water temperature of 0.5 degrees and -15 air temperatures plus 3000ft of altitude and an extreme overhead environment plus completely pitch black conditions inside the cave  #OriginalDivePhoto #originaldivephoto @originaldiving @divemag #scuba #paditv #tdidivers #sdidivers #tech #techdive #ice #icecave #natgeo #natgeoadventure #scuba #scubadiving #underwater #scubadiving #nauticam #canon #canon5dmarkiv #nanight #adventure #iceland #arcticadventures #magmadive #llangjokull #glacier #icecave #cavedive

The Arctic is changing in striking ways, but change in the Arctic is not always obvious - in fact, sometimes it is hidden. Amidst shrubs, tucked behind stones and often surviving in the most improbable of places, many tundra plants remain unnoticed by scientists. Discovering this hidden biodiversity can help us understand how life on Earth is being altered at its northernmost extremes… To understand these shifts in tundra ecosystems, we need to look beyond the plots and capture the landscape context of biodiversity change - all the species lurking just outside of the plots…. This so-called “dark biodiversity” can be the hidden source of future biodiversity change in the Arctic that might then go on to influence how the entire ecosystem functions... Follow our journey as we discover stories of hidden biodiversity and unique experiences at the northern edge of the world.

Every summer in the Arctic, a dark frozen landscape rapidly transforms into a vibrant tundra ecosystem rich with plants and wildlife. This remarkable yet brief transition from 24-hour darkness to midnight sun creates a tundra teaming with life which has drawn scientists north for decades… The Arctic is warming more rapidly than the rest of the globe and has already warmed by two degrees Celsius in the last half century. This warming is melting sea ice, thawing permafrost - permanently frozen ground - and changing the tundra environment. And as the tundra warms, plants are responding… the Arctic is becoming greener... Team Shrub is heading to Qikiqtaruk-Herschel Island this summer to capture the hotspots of tundra vegetation change at landscape scales.

Happy Icelandic National day! .
Iceland will always be a special country since It was there where I took my first steps as a landscape photographer some years ago.
You can't get tired of all the natural wonders across the island, it's just full of colors, life and breathtaking scenes. .
Can't wait to travel back there in September!

Happy Icelandic National day! One of the countries we have enjoyed the most; Chasing Northern lights, capturing landscapes full of contrasts, discovering new locations in the highlands...anyone should go there are least once in a lifetime! We can't wait to get back next September!

The sheer scale of this place 🤤 The mighty Skogafoss definitely did not disappoint 💥⁣
⁣
⁣
⁣This is definitely one of Iceland's most busy places. We drove past a few times and it was rammed but came back at about 9pm and there was pretty much no one here 👌 Those long days of sunlight in Iceland really help out at the popular spots 👏

The amauti is the traditional way of the Inuit for carrying a baby/toddler. They designed a coat with a pouch in the back for the child to stay warm against the mother’s back, and with a hood that was large enough to cover and protect both the child and the mother against the wind. 
We love this doll sized version of the amauti handmade by a talented Inuit seamstress.

Dangerous marine life can be spotted in this area, или Белые медведи и ружья. Polar bear - это символ Свальбарда,  самый сильный и опасный хищник на планете, крайне агрессивные полтонны мыщц. Ему ничего не стоит догнать снегоход на скорости 50 км в час, за день медведь может проплыть до 650 км в ледяном океане. Сейчас их тут около 3500, но если разбросать это число на территорию в 62 000 кв кв., то вероятность встречи на самом деле небольшая. Чтобы защитить медведей от нас и нас от них, на Свальбарде законом запрещено покидать пределы посёлка без сигнальной ракеты и ружья. Первая - чтобы отпугнуть хищника шумом и вспышками, второе - если первое не помогло. Если вы убьёте или раните медведя, Свальбард начнёт против вас расследование, и если не будет доказано что вы приложили максимум усилий чтобы избежать встречи со зверем, вас посадят лет на 10. Такие случаи уже были. Норвежцы очень берегут медведей, понимают, что люди здесь - гости, причем гости нежеланные, эти земли принадлежат зверям,это их последний дом. Результатом глобального потепления мы наблюдаем быструю и мучительную смерть арктических льдов, а с ними и исчезновение вида. Учёные говорят, что полярные медведи в дикой природе ПОЛНОСТЬЮ вымрут к 2025му году. Это через 5 лет, вы только представьте. Приезжайте в Арктику! Возможно, это наш последний шанс увидеть север таким. #svalbard #svalbardlife #svalbardwildlifeexpeditions #arcticlife #spitzbergen #spitzbergenadventures #svalbardpictures #svalbardandjanmayen #arcticadventures

Seeing these graceful and beautiful giants, have been a childhood dream for me since I was 7 or 8! ✨🐳🏔️
.
During two kayak trips, more than one humpback whale, kinda just danced around us for hours, allowing us to watch it surface, breathe and dive numerous times, and getting up really close.
. 
Hearing it breathing, and even kinda mourning, from what seemed like a pleased and full fed happy whale, made me so happy ! 😍🛶
.
The first book I remember I wished for my birthday, was a collection of all the world's dolphins and whales, and I kept reading it over and over again for months, and are quite sure I still have it today! .
All days here in Ilulissat are amazing, and then there are days like today, that are just straight up magical!! .
THIS is why I'm here!!
So freaking grateful for these huge experiences!! ❤️🙏🏼

Got stuck in the ice two days in a row but today was so perfect! Sunny weather, belugas and...we met the king of Arctic!
I’ll show it pretty soon💪🏻

Today was the beachiest of days, on the island of Sommarøy - and included R's first paddle in the sea. The water was chuffing freezing but she didn't seem to mind - must be the Fife upbringing!

These little guys are everywhere around Iceland.
Just have to be careful not to hit them while driving.

All days here in Ilulissat are amazing, and then there are days like today, that are just straight up magical!! .
THIS is why I'm here!!
So freaking grateful for these huge experiences!! ❤️🙏🏼

It’s been a busy week between training and meetings in Iceland, Copenhagen and Amsterdam. The PTGA has added 7 Provisional Assessors to our growing list. This increases our capacity to deliver testing across the polar regions using our Qualifications Framework and syllabi and the ISO audited processes for testing guides competency. We are proud to have this next batch of Assessors who, regardless of any other measures, represent a group of people not afraid to engage in robust, but open-minded discussion about guide practices. Thanks for that.

"Lesson: Always have your camera on you. 
The story behind the photo is pretty simple... It was February on the southeast coast of Iceland & I had returned to try and photograph a wave that had always been lacking swell during my summer trips. Winter seemed like the best option. We parked, hike up over the frozen dunes and made our way toward the beach. The surf was high & the sound of the sea was a continuous roar. We finally got a view of the beach and just at the high tide line two Icelandic horses were making their way in unison toward the surf. I fumbled to grab my small camera out of my jacket and take a photo. They marched toward the water. Stopped and turned around for home. The moment happened so fast.. no time to adjust settings or do “another take” the moment was there and gone. Yelling over the sound of the waves was impossible. I later learned they were the landowner Omar’s horses and I made a big print for his house. 
This photo has always been a good lesson that when I’m working I never leave without the camera, and more importantly it should be preset & ready to actually take a photo, not tucked away in a backpack in need of a settings adjustment."

Heinabergslón glacier is often listed as one of the best alternatives to Jökulsárlón as it is filled with icebergs and its water is relatively clear compared to the other smaller glacier lagoons. The size of its icebergs can be especially impressive!
