Frozen Sea

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Grant Kaye

Wind-sculpted snow and the frozen waters of the Chukchi Sea lie bathed in the soft light of the perpetual winter afternoon golden hour north of Barrow, Alaska. A layer of fog in the far-ground sits over open water at the edge of the ice pack, which according to locals I spoke with was much closer to shore this year than it typically is at the beginning of February.

Location: Barrow, Alaska
