Wishing you an amazing rest of your day. I love to read your comments and remind you that you matter, you are enough, and you deserve kindness. Take a moment and think of the good and perhaps...enjoy a cookie! 🎅🏻♥️🍪
Hearts go to The USA....A reoccurring scene in California, with bush fires in Australia last year.
Warmer weather starting to be felt all across, I know those who say climate change is a natural thing yes it is....but pollution is a massive factor, the Iceland land ice has massively shrunk, Antarctica now feeling the warmer world, signs of the jet stream slowing which will cause many problems globally. Food for us mainly. Out of balance eco systems for sea reefs to on land mammals means mass extinctions the biggest since dinosaur's were cleared out, we were put here to look after this planet not kill it.
As much as I really like using aluminium for my wildlife photography, it adds up after a while, and considering how many I have to print after this summer (it's been a GREAT summer for it) I don't think I'll be doing so anymore. Since I'll be switching to another medium, and I like uniformity when it comes to this stuff, I'll be selling these. They're all 5x7 aluminum with a floating wall mount already attached and I have them for each of the images shown.
The world has been a weird place lately. It has been a difficult time for many, including myself.
In this seemingly never ending moment in timeout, the thing I miss the most is travel. The solitude of looking out the plane window at the passing landscapes, meeting up with friends in random locales, exploring different cultures through food, sport, and laughter... I MISS IT ALL.
My favorite travel thing, however, is discovering awe inspiring gems while wandering aimlessly. Which is exactly what happened when I came across this lake in Alaska with the northern lights gliding through the sky above it.
Missing these experiences so badly will make it that much sweeter when regular life gets an encore.
All I know is adventure will happen again. Being wonderfully lost, without the threat of being eaten by a bear 🐻, will be a regular occurrence once more. Every cell in my body longs for these days and I cannot wait for them to return.
17 men from our ‘Cold Life Initiative Team’ passed away on their Journey back from the Northern ice sheet. They got this one picture of a smooth ice dog slippin some nip. Who knew these fuckers even had tits! To the families of our called C.L.I.T members just remember. It was all for a cult dedicated to Milk 🤷🏻♂️. #clitresearch#northpole#willitmilk#milkcult#weownyou

August 3, 1958, the U.S. nuclear submarine Nautilus accomplishes the first undersea voyage to the geographic North Pole.
The world’s first nuclear submarine, the Nautilus dived at Point Barrow, Alaska, and traveled nearly 1,000 miles under the Arctic ice cap to reach the top of the world. It then steamed on to Iceland, pioneering a new and shorter route from the Pacific to the Atlantic and Europe.
The submarine traveled at a depth of about 500 feet, and the ice cap above varied in thickness from 10 to 50 feet, with the midnight sun of the Arctic shining in varying degrees through the blue ice. At 11:15 p.m. EDT on August 3, 1958, Commander Anderson announced to his crew: “For the world, our country, and the Navy–the North Pole.” -
The Nautilus passed under the geographic North Pole without pausing. The submarine next surfaced in the Greenland Sea between Spitzbergen and Greenland on August 5. Two days later, it ended its historic journey at Iceland. For the command during the historic journey, President Dwight D. Eisenhower decorated Anderson with the Legion of Merit.
The world’s first nuclear submarine went on exhibit in 1986 as the Historic Ship Nautilus at the Submarine Force Museum in Groton, Connecticut.

This afternoon temperatures reach 22°C / 72°F on Spitsbergen, Svalbard. The extreme Arctic heatwave continues. Earlier this summer we saw forest fires spread through parts of Siberia, grounds normally too frozen to burn, with temperatures close to 40°C/100°F far north of the Arctic Circle.
What kind of world do we want to leave for the next generations? Not dealing with climate change doesn’t only mean that the ice melts and the polar bear becomes extinct. The melting of the ice caps also affect the planet’s weather systems and the circulation of the oceans. Extreme weather with flooding, fires, drought and heatwaves would force hundreds of millions of people from their homes. It would also mean enormous difficulties producing food due to unstable and unpredictable growing seasons.
