At the Glacier

During a 10-day hike on Ellesmere Island, my brother Carl and I found ourselves intimately close to the frozen walls of Henrietta Nesmith Glacier. An icy waterfall plunged from the glacier into a small river that flowed nearby. The 24-hour sunlight spilled all around us and I became lost in my canvas. We stayed for hours, boiled up some soup, and revelled in this glorious place at the top of the world – a memory we will both grow old with.
