Arctic photographs

As a child I could spend hours looking at photos of mountains and glaciers and reading about the Arctic and Antarctica. In the last few years I have had the opportunity to visit some of the places I dreamt about as a child, and of course I returned home with a lot of photos of my own. A few of them are collected here.
