Arctic photo archive

January 31, 2007

Justine Curgenven caught on camera a sea kayak pitchpoling in heavy storm surf and posted a clip on her blog. But even more interesting is a post about the Danish arctic photo archive www.arktiskebilleder.dk. As Justine says:

The database is in Danish only but… if you look for kajakker you will have all kayak-photos, starting with the oldest. You can limit the search by writing kajakker fangst (kayaks hunting), but you might miss some relevant photos.

I did just that and found some hauntingly beautiful photos. I chose these three as they are intriguing, instructive and a little scary.

They also capture the key to my interest in sea kayaking, self sufficiency.
