    This.

    This is, truly, one of the more achingly beautiful things I have yet seen.











    The only way I can imagine it being better is to be there in person. The artist brings you right to the cusp of that experience.



    Simply incredible.



    He may not have been on a fatbike but that is the only way that I have experienced that landscape. Hope to be back there soon.

    Wow! Amazing anything can survive there. I'd have been concerned about becoming a lower part of the food chain!

    Amazing. I wondered what those poor wolves ate until i saw the hares, then i wondered what they ate (besides the twigs they were chewing on). How does one get in close proximity to polar bears without becoming their lunch? Seems like a change in wind direction and you're history.

    Tough way to warm your boots.

    I showed it to my 6th grade students. They were silent for the whole thing- very cool stuff.

    Pssshh. There wasn't even any words, man.















    That was incredible. I wanna go. I'd probably burn my boots down though.

    One carries a 600+mm lens as that guy did, so that you can get your footage from a LONG ways away.

    That, and a flare gun to deter them when they catch your scent, and a real gun in case they aren't deterred. Best to shoot yourself with it -- it'll all come out the same, but you'll suffer less that way...



    I wonder if he was warming them or drying them? Seems unlikely to do much of either -- but he'd know better than me.

    Right, probably drying them. Considering the heat a candle puts out i suppose it has to be better than just shoving your foot in. Long lens or not, that has to be sketchy when you're a long ways from nowhere.

    Great find!

    I sometimes have problems with imbedded video on this site, and I did in this case. I can usually open the page in Chrome and that works for me. If that isn't an option then I Reply With Quote and pull out the video URL from there.

    Thanks for posting the video. I would have pre-ordered the book if it wasn't in French.

    Dumb. Bringing something like that to bear on wolves that are agile and quick moving (hunting you, probably keeping distance until you get tired) animals is dumb. Great big-bear gun and moose-gun, and some guides do carry the .500SW for insertions far from help, but for wolves? No way, not the right tool if you feel you need a firearm.

    I have to second the comment about how amazing it is that there is so much life supported out in such a hostile environment.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I convinced my wife to sit down from her busy schedule just before she went to work... sold her on the premise of "Want to lower your blood pressure for ten minutes?"

    No need to drive to work angry. This thread literally made my loved one's life safer today. Thanks!
