Best Scenery of the Trip - Sam Ford Fjord, Baffin Island, Canada

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by bobhoge, Sep 12, 2008.

  1. Probably the greatest scenic views (and great light) during our recent adventure were in Sam Ford Fjord, Baffin Island, Canada.

    The cliffs in this fjord were up to 4000 feet high and the water was usually over 1000 feet deep. A 7:00 AM entry to the fjord made for great lighting.

  2. Great set. Very beautiful indeed.
  3. Wow! It looks like winter at Yosemite by the sea. :tongue::smile:
  4. Sweet! Send me there with 2 ropes and a portaledge and I could climb forever.

  5. bob & nan... these are wonderful shots
    what a glorious area of beauty
  6. It is very hard to convey massiveness in photos. Yours do. Thanks for wetting my travel appetite.
  7. Beautiful, Bob. Sure looks cold, though, for late summer!

    :biggrin: Pun intended?
  8. Wow! Great series. Thank you again for your wonderful images.
  9. Hi Sean,

    You might enjoy doing a Google search on "Sam Ford Fjord". I did one to try to find out who Sam Ford was, (no idea:confused: ) but ran into a bunch of climbing articles. It seems that most of those peaks were first climbed in the last 10-12 years. One of the first teams included Gordon Wiltsie as photographer. It looks like they went in May/June when the water was still frozen and camped on the ice.

    Now they climb, ski, kite ski and base jump there. Our way was more Nan & my speed:wink:.
