People are amazing. What they endure, what they will do for each other and for creatures great and small. Ulrik Vedel, a dogsledder shoes this passion for his dogs. As Gordon Wiltsie who photographed it describes the bitterness for himself in just taking the photo.
"As temperatures dip and what some people from the lower 49 states in the USA might call #extreme #weather, I am reminded of a picture I shot on #SevernayaZemlya, one of the northernmost #polar archipeligos in #Russia. Here, #Arctic #Danish #dogsledder Ulrik Vedel from #Denmark, prepares to set up a tent at minus 55 degrees (F,) wondering if polar bears are lurking nearby. Not long after this picture was taken Ulrik dived into the #polar seas to rescue a dog that broke through thin ice on the #ArcticOcean and almost died of #hypothermia, himself. Just changing #film was enough to nearly frostbite my own fingers." Shot on assignment for @natgeo. @natgeocreative
