Land of the Midnight Sun

Photo and caption by Jenny Stevens

This shot was taken in Paisley which is located on the Boothia Peninsula, Nunavut above the Arctic Circle. We were going through the Northwest Passage on an icebreaker with the tour company, Adventure Canada. The sun was always low in the sky and we were out in the Zodiacs in Paisley Bay photographing grounded icebergs. The beauty of the High Arctic is amazing.

Location: Paisley Bay, Boothia Peninsula, Nunavut, Canada
