Arnab Chaudhuri‘s mini album: Frozen in time

Photographer’s word: This is one of the places where you feel like time has come to a halt, a place where there is nothing but pristine wilderness, a place where ancient modes of living make more sense than the illusions of modern civilisation.

This is Kluane National Park, Yukon, nestled in the northwest corner of Canada. It is a vast wilderness reserve protected by Parks Canada and is home to the largest non-polar ice-fields of the planet and the highest mountain peak of Canada, Mount Logan (5960 m). We visited this wondrous place in late September of this year after travel restrictions were relaxed inside Canada.

This series of photos features the massive ice-fields of the St. Elias Mountains of the national park. Being extremely remote and subjected to hazardous mountain weather, only a select few dare to hike to these ice-fields by foot. We took the easier route of flying over these mountain ranges in a four person prop plane and tried to capture the moments for memories to take home. This is an experience of a lifetime. 

Arnab is a scientist by profession. He is native of Serampore, Hooghly, India and has been living in Canada for the past 12 years. He works as an R and D scientist. He is a travel buff and loves landscape photography.
