Sometimes it's hard for me to conceive that other contemporaneous people on this planet lead lives so dramatically different from my own. What if this or this or this constituted your daily commute? Or if this or this were among the challenges you faced in your daily job? The native people and arctic wildlife galleries offer a glimpse of the past preserved. More wonders at Bryan & Cherry Alexander Photography.

Thanks to debralee's ulu thread, which sparked a surf session that led to this great find ;-)

I would move there in a heartbeat if they have cable connection and towers for my cell phone.

I love this...and I don't think I'll be whining about the cold any more as I wait for spring.

Elegant photo choices. If this were Slashdot I'd +5 you.

Thank you for the fantastic post. My younger sister has worked up in the NWT for the past two summers, and I still have no real concept of what life is really like up there. These pictures are stunning.

Don't forget the best Chinese restaurant in Greenland.

So what you're saying is that Spock and Zarabeth could have lived happily after?

Thanks, madamjujujive! These are amazing. As a newbie I blush to say it, but these will take their place beside other winter photos for me, rather than claiming first place.

You see, your post instantly cast my mind back to thoughts of wooden houses, some roofed with grass, tiny lights glinting in the freezing air, everything around silvered with snow...

So I went looking and found some good stuff, but then realised that the glorious link I remembered had been here, on the blue, for 2 whole years... and I looked, and saw that it was by madamjujujive too!

Conclusion: madam, verily, thy posting rocks! Particularly thy winter posting. Long before I was a member, that Lofoten post put me on cloud nine for a week. Wow.

Postroad, I would think that you might not be too happy in a place where the nubile young things wear so many clothes ;-)

stokast, how cool that you met these photographers and that your Dad's hand is captured on film for the ages neat, thanks for sharing.

paperpete, isn't that Lofoten gallery superb? But credit for that really goes to longtime mefioso - have you been to his website? It's chock full of cool things.

/ waves to melissa may and thanks Saucy Intruder for the fun restaurant link. I wonder if they do take out?

The positive feedback is much appreciated - it's fun to share things, all the more so when you know other people enjoyed them too.
