The Arctic Desert

Two blocks from my house... looking west at the Arctic Ocean freezing. Just love it here. (I'm in a tiny village west of Barrow, Alaska called Ulguniq or Kuuk by the Inupiaq or Wainright by the non natives. I'm teaching special education, grades 7-12, in a k-12 school, until Christmas.)
Wow simply beautiful fav

It feels cold even through computer, I prefer hot over cold personally, so I don't think I will ever experience something like that...But it is a stunning scene... Great capture

@mbrutus Yes, fortunately... no fireplaces etc., as no trees, no wood. The houses and other buildings are heated by huge boiler furnaces that run on diesel, and there is a lot of diesel up here.

@danette It really is... I feel so lucky to get to have this experience. And teaching up here really brings me closer to the people.

This is just amazing - love the hint of color to the tones - subtle - really like the feeling of the solitude in these shots. And a perfect amount of time to experience it all. Marvelous adventure. Fav
