@icelandic_explorer Stuff like this brings brightness to the dark winter mornings 😁

@seffis So amazing brotha!😍 That was a good day!

The Silent Arctic Photographic Expedition in Greenland: Day 2, pt. 2
Ok guys basically day 2 was so epic, that I couldn’t fit it all into one carousel, so I made another one! This amounts to MORE bears and MORE perspective shots of the vessel Opal and the land around us. There is nothing like a giant iceberg  to humble you and your size. Puny little humans! #silentarctic

The Silent Arctic Photo Expedition: A Day-by-Day Series. Day 2: Five Bear Day.
We woke in Greenland for the first time. This is a surreal experience in itself. You know that feeling, when you wake up somewhere completely strange for the first time? 
And so, we woke to reports from Donna Wood our sister vessel of a bear (there’s only one kind of bear out here, the Polar Bear), then it was OMG everybody, battle stations! The first bear (a young male) swam between our vessels and then extremely close to us, within 3 meters (PIC 1&2). Then, there was an AVALANCHE off of the glacier closest to us, right into the sea! (PIC 3 and SLOW-MO VID 4)

After an extremely exciting morning, it was time for a celebratory beer (PIC 5), @ashwinigupte and @amk_travels getting stuck in here!

Then, our incredible guide saw some more bears in the distance, this time it was a mother and two cubs! Our jaws hit the floor, it was too good to be true. We went towards them, but kept our distance, out of respect. (PIC 6)

Later in the day we found a sleeping Bear (an adult male, the biggest kind) sleeping on an iceberg about the size of a New York City block. We were going that way anyway, and we watched him wake up, yawn a few time, roll around a bit, ignore us and go back to sleep, but not before we got a good look at his tongue! As we sailed away, you can see the context within which we saw him: ice everywhere! (PIC 7&8)

This was probably one of the best days ever. Little did I know, there were to be 6 more!

Silent Arctic Photo Expedition: A day-by-day Series. Day 1.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about where my Greenland pictures are. The truth is that it was a journey that has taken a tremendous amount of time to process. So, I have decided that the best way to show how this journey played out over is to do a series 7 posts, one for every day of the journey.  For everybody that is curious about what we saw on that journey, this is for you. Here, you will find a caption for each photo: 
1/2: Opal and Donna Wood, an incredible duo. 
3: This was our first sight of Greenland through the window of our special charter plane from Air Iceland Connect.

4: We approach a strange, moody patch of mist lying out to sea, not connected to the land.

5: Opal right in the thick of the moodiness. We were elated and ecstatic to be in this beautiful scenery. The captain may have been a bit nervous(!) 6: Details from the misty ice.

7: @amk_travels looking pretty badass on board Opal.

8: We land in Ittoqqortoormiit after many hours of sailing, and our guide Olaf, with over 40 years of experience in Northeast Greenland, smiles back at me.
Later, he would admit that in that week, he had had his picture taken more times than for his entire life up until that point. 
9: Donna Wood sails off into the distance, slightly ahead of  us (Opal) and towards the icebergs. #silentarctic #greenland

Probably the scariest picture I have. It’s moody, it’s Arctic Foxy, and there’s a bit of orange which makes it Halloween friendly. All shot in the Westfjords on the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, Europes last true wilderness. Have fun tonight folks, Happy Halloween! #halloween #iceland

It has been six months in the making, but today I am pleased to announce my first (solo) exhibition between Oct 26th - Nov 30th at their flagship store in Chester, UK, in collaboration with @tessutiuk and in support of their “For The Pioneers” winter campaign.
.
.
Here is a little snippet of what will be on show : all the images are taken from my adventures over the last years in Iceland, Greenland and Norway. 
It was not easy to boil the last years’ worth of work and exploration down to 30 main images, and capture the essence of the landscapes I have had the honour and privilege of experiencing.
.
.
I will be opening the exhibition with a live Q&A on Thursday 25th October, and the exhibition will be open for all to see from Friday 26th October. If you go and check it out, show me! I really hope you like it!

More takes on the Icelandic autumn. I’m sitting in the airport right now, waiting for a flight to take me to London (and somewhere secret that a very special certain someone) has arranged for my birthday, which is Friday. By the time I get back, it will most likely all be gone, but if I can get out here one last time after I get back I will. #iceland #fall #autumn

@mbeiter Oh fantastic Joe! 🙌🏻

@mbeiter @joe_shutter Yeah buddy! 💪🏻 It rocks!

Alright everyone so it turns out that there was quite a high level of stoke about the photo series from yesterday, so i guess I’ll be doing more!  Not only that, I also got some really awesome replies from all corners of the globe: it doesn’t matter where you are, there’s autumnal magic to be had everywhere it seems!

I get very reflective around this time of year, for there were many changes afoot in my life, not just a change of seasons, I have been working freelance for 2/3 years now, but for a while I was working as a full time content creator for an Icelandic company. Then, I was suddenly relieved of my duties, to put it politely. This forced me to ask a lot of questions about my direction, It took me a whole winter to figure it out, but in the end I decided to double down and make iceland work. And the result? Well, I’m still working it out, but  every twist and turn in the journey has been amazing.

What was your defining moment? Was there a crucial decision that you had to make that made a huge fork in your life? Did you ever look back?

Guys, there’s going to be more series on the feed now I think, especially in AUTUMN. Sound good? I hope so. I got majorly called out for saying FALL when I should have said AUTUMN. I must stay true to my British roots, #amiright? You know who you are! 🤣  Thanks for keeping me on the straight and narrow,  legend! .
.

ANYWAY, The autumnal vibes in Iceland are insane. The cold air is creeping in, and it carries and epic freshness, it just fills the lungs with vitality, and there is a light dusting of snow on the high mountains, Every day now, the snow line descends.  The trick is of course to find trees, which isn’t so hard if you know where to go.
.
.

Share some autumnal vibes with me and I’ll get right back to you in DMs. Stay out there, and go kick some leaves around and let out your inner child! Tell em’ nothing! Looking forward to hearing from you all! #iceland #autumn #fall

@followmeaway Hahahah!!!! This is so beautiful!

It’s amazing to think that Arctic Foxes  change colour in accordance with he seasons. Here, we see a Fox shedding his white winter coat, revealing the darker “blue” summer coat beneath.
