Posting panoramas online has always been a challenge as the format doesn’t quite work for the way websites are displayed. The images are usually too long and not tall enough to do justice to landscapes, but in this case I just couldn’t help posting this one as it was such a special moment. The original panorama is actually about twice as long as what you see here (the full resolution is 24,000 pixels wide), but that would have been an even bigger problem posting it here.
We arrived with our Zodiacs on Rongé Island at about 9.30pm and as soon as we were on solid ground we started using snowshoes to dig in the snow and create a space for our bivouacs. Once that was done and we were comfortable enough with how our place for the night was looking, we spent the next 3-4 hours taking photographs of the amazing landscape around us. The image you see above was taken at about 11pm and as you can see there was still quite a bit of sunlight shining on the mountains across the channel. If you want to see a couple more images from this particular evening you can go here or here.
