From the INTO THE ARCTIC Project
We had pressed on for another two and a half hours by boat, deep into Walker Arm. There, in the heart of this stark landscape, we pitched camp for the last time during my 30 days on Baffin. Seldom have I had a better view right from my tent, facing a kilometre-high granite wall across the fiord, complete with a plunging glacier. Stunning light raked across the scene as I painted, until grey skies slid over the scene and gently covered me in a soft rain.
