ARCTIC | BAFFIN ISLAND | GREENLAND


Arctic


Arctic Quest was a voyage exploring the High Arctic on board the National Geographic Explorer with Lindblad Expeditions.


We departed Reykjavik, Iceland on July 22, 2013, sailed across the Denmark Strait to southern , then north along the coast to Ilulissat, Greenland, and across the Davis Strait to Baffin Island and Devon Island in the far north.


My assignment was to photograph the expedition and also the ship itself.


Taking advantage of unusual calm weather and favorable ice conditions at Disko Bay, we chartered flight-seeing planes and also a helicopter to shoot aerial photos of the Explorer as she navigated the pack ice.
