Artist's Description

One of the problems of working in the high Arctic is losing track of time and wondering why you start feeling so tired! Because our workdays were “as long as it takes”, judging time by the sun was not much help. This photo was taken close to midnight in August, 1955. The place was an un-named stretch of land on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Beaufort Sea, part of the Arctic Ocean. If I remember correctly, the land in the far distance is Banks Island. The tundra we stood on, in the North-West Territories of Canada, stretched for hundreds of miles from the shore back south to the tree line. I persuaded my two buddies to stop pitching tents long enough to get the photo, despite the mosquitoes that were always present.
Exakta Varex 35mm.SLR, f.2.0 Biotar lens, Kodachrome ASA10 film, exposure probably 1/50 sec. and around f.2.8 or so, no filters.
Scanned in 2004 with a Canoscan 4000US scanner.
