nunavik

As you are reading this I am in Nunavik. I'm here for 6 days doing some consulting work in Kangirsuk. I had the privilege of visiting Nunavik for 6 weeks in 2007 and thought I'd share some of my favourite images from that time until I'm back to share some new ones. The ruggedness of the rocks and the plants really reached into my soul and I've been yearning for them ever since. I'm doing this via the magic of a scheduled post because I doubt that I will have internet access here! By the time you see this post I will be winding up my trip here and gearing up to post my new photos. Stay tuned for next week...

I love the weathered textures and simple subdued colors and the plants.

Your photography is like your art pieces, so sensitive and sensual.

jeane...I'm winking at you with my eyes!

robyn...I loved that photo so much that I turned it into my logo for art vein studio. It's on my business card and my website. It sounds crazy but I feel I have a relationship with that rock. I look forward to returning to the small community where it lives so I can say hello to it again.

lynne...water and rocks as far as the eye can see. No roads. A beautiful place.

mansuetude...the fish is indeed very good there. Arctic Char is a specialty!

jo...more to come!

layers...me too!

frannie...what a kind thing to say!
