Photographer's Note

This is a picture of a Norwegian sailing ship that was attempting to cross the North West Passage and had to turn back due to ice conditions. I thought it would make an excellent photo showing the blue skies of the arctic, the snow falling on the right side of the picture showing that winter was approaching. The open water shows that the ice hasn't yet stopped all navigation. Temperature was around - 5 degrees C.
I used an Olympus E-20N digital camera on automatic setting.
