“I will never forget waking up this morning to the sight of Anvers Island and the surrounding glaciers. When I steeped out onto the deck Jeremy Jones was already eyeing up his line which you can see just above the ship and slightly to the right. You can also see this line in Jeremy’s Film Deeper.”

“The Alps rise very dramatically from the valley floor of Chamonix, France. On winter afternoons, when you have already been out of the rays of the sun for hours, the high peaks of the Alps glow in beautiful soft light.”
One Big Happy Family.

Sunrise in Juneau, Alaska photo by Ralph Backstom
Because of the trajectory of the sun in the higher latitudes sunrises and sunsets seem to go on for hours. This was our first morning in Alaska during this trip and dramatic sunrise over Juneau airport made of a great photo.

Snow White Peak, Antarctica photo by Timothy Konrad
I was standing at the edge of the water looking at all the penguins when I turned around to see Squaw local, Glen Poulsen, making his way up the glacier with his team. I maxed out my zoom and snapped this shot. That night when I was looking back over my photos from the day the optical illusion of the zoom compressing the shot made it look as if Snow White Peak, which was miles away, was rising right out the snow field.

It was well past midnight when I fired off this shot as we headed up the north coast of Antarctica.

Early morning flight over Moscow, Russia. photo buy Tim Konrad
We were on our way to Sochi, Russia for the first stop of the Freeride World tour when we flew over downtown Moscow. The amount of smoke stacks billowing out smoke that cold morning was truly unbelievable.
