Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park
This image was taken during an evening hike on a hill at Sylvia Grinnell Park, Iqaluit. A pool of water formed by the melting ice and snow. The transparency of the water in combination with the rocks on the bottom foreground created a very interesting composition. May 19, 2019.
