Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic
Canon 1DX MKII, Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 Art Lens
Camera Settings: Manual Exposure, F5.6, ISO 25600, 1/1250 In March 2022, I went on an extreme expedition to one of the coldest places on earth. For three years I planned to visit Ellesmere Island, one of the last bastions on the planet, to capture some of its stunning wildlife. Travelling by snowmobile, it was a painful experience as temperatures on my mercury dipped below -50 degrees before adding wind chill. After reaching what was a wooden hut, I set up camp there and went in search of wildlife. During what was the coldest day, I took this selfie to show what we endured on the expedition. Ice had formed on my eyebrows and I had developed some frostbite on my nose where my mask has dropped down as temperatures fell below -50 degrees.
