Arctic Discoveries

Traveling in Arctic regions via sea or ground transportation is a unique experience. The treeless, rugged landscape views are impressive. I discovered other photo-worthy scenes during a mid-summer visit to far Eastern Siberia in Russia several years ago.

Various discarded items related to 19th Century maritime operations (ship’s rope above), along with remnants from original whaling settlements can be found. Colorful flowers bloom in strange places.

A flittering and tiny male Snow Bunting stopped nearby and remained long enough for me to make a memory.

After I downloaded the image below, I realized I had a very nice composition that tells a story … man vs nature.

Lastly, I discovered several items left behind by those once once living there, such as an old “two-holer.”  A metal teapot and rusted lock were special. As I walked away I wondered if I was the only person having discovered these common items, left unseen for so many years in the very remote Providence Bay region of Eastern Siberia in Russia. I wondered if anyone else would see them in the future. It was an experience and privilege of a lifetime to be there.
