Listening to these words adapted from Robert Marshalls "Alaska Wilderness: Exploring the Brooks Range," I can feel the sense wanting to try moving farther into the unknown landscapes of the world growing in me once again!
Nature, as Marshall points out, is sometimes staggering in it's grandeur. And I want to get out and see more of it!
The images were mostly taken from Expedition Arguk in 2013, during which 300 miles of wilderness in the Alaska Arctic were trekked and packraft in order to report on Arctic issues and create public-use media from this far-off but increasingly important region. This area has no guidebooks. No trails. No campgrounds or roads. It's truly a bit of sort of unexplored land, and I want to go!
I'm really amazing by the editing on this piece as well: though there are many still photos used, they were truly brought to life through the parallax and layering. The last shot was especially amazing: the first layer is a bit blurred, and the mountain instead gets to be the focal point, which totally brings the proper attention to nature in this case.
Who else wants to go the Brooks Range?
