Just over thirty six hours ago I wrapped up my Weddell Sea Antarctica expedition (full report will follow) and began the long journey from the South Pole to the north. I am now in Iceland and about to head to the remote north west (after a few hours sleep) and take a small charter boat to the remote Hornstradir nature reserve where I will spend the next ten days working on my Arctic Fox project. Iceland is a very special place to me and its remote north eastern peninsula holds a very special place in my heart. It is an area of incredible beauty, solitude and peacefulness where I feel at home with my thoughts and at peace with the world. The winter months are brutally cold but bring with them a white wonder that perfectly juxtaposes the severe cold and biting winds of this exposed peninsula. These remote areas are becoming exceptionally rare on our planet and I cherish the time I get to spend in them.
This is the third year of the project and I hope to gather the remaining images I need to complete the book during this trip (A Portfolio of prints of the project is already available through my website). I am very much looking forward to getting out into the remote wilderness and spending time with these amazing animals again before I kick off my Iceland winter workshop with Daniel Bergmann.
