A two week journey in Northern Greenland
Lens: various Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Northwestern Greenland 
Posted By: Duplo, 06-03-2011, 03:47 AM

Granted I do not post often, but every now and then I hope to find the time.
I spend a lot of time traveling and much time shooting.

I am now done processing and writing from my trip to North Greenland, an amazing adventure.

Now as the format here is a little difficult to make fit, then I will just post a couple of Teasers... the tech story you will have to dig up at DPR.

The travel log from the trip is here though:
Duploworld: The North Greenland Travel log
The favourite images from the trip here:

The full gallery here:
Duplo Photography | North Greenland 2011

But onto a few samples:

Traditionalism:
A walrus hunter walking up to his dog, to check a possible injury
(K-5 and DA*16.50 @ 39mm)




Comfort zones:
In this tiny cabin 6 people were sleeping for the night. You will ahve to read the full story to understand the tittle and the image.
(K-5 and DA14)




Endurance:
A local walrus hunter guiding his sled and dogs among crisp ice close to the edge of the sea ice, as the fog preceding a blixxard reels in behind him
(K-5 and DA*16-50 @ 50mm)




The factory:
What we think is an old factory located with a gorgeous fiord view.
In the background the rais from the sun falling behin the ridge camera left.
(K-5 and FA77ltd)




The Sled tent:
Our happy home at sunset.
(K.5 and DA14)



I even managed to squeeze in a full day of sledding in Ilulissat on my way south:
(K-5 and FA*24)



And to shoot two portrait sessions with this young lady:
(K-5 and FA77ltd)



Thanks for looking.
Comments and questions are as always highly welcome

Wow... As always, your shots of the Arctic are stunning and make me feel as though I were right there. Makes me miss those nice cold winters in Nebraska!

And that last portrait shot - just gorgeous (both the young lady and your work)...

Thanks Charlie.
It was chilly at times, but never much below -30C, but then again at no time above -20C either.

Glad you like the approach.

Turned out quite well for a photoshoot where everything went wrong

It was indeed one of the better trips we have taken and very much an adventure too.
I am glad the images helped convey the adventure for you.

Thank you Jim,
I am glad the images makes you feel like being there, that is indeed a valued compliment.

The portrait is definitely one of the better ones, especially for what was a failed photoshoot

I can assure you many others have ben done before, by many photographers, but outdoor portrait sessions in -20C is always a little tricky, especially for the model.

It is a trip well worth it I think.

Thank you for the very fine compliments Dave.

I am not sure it is NG material but appreciate the compliment anyway.

She is a very impressive girl on that we agree.
