Why We Chose It

How is it that Nunavut looks like a seaside beach resort? Landscape shots on Baffin Island are always stunning, but the photographer was smart here to include humans in the photo to provide a sense of scale. And the scale is astounding! The photo is amazingly crisp and well-framed. The clear blue waters and the unspoiled beach beside the granite mountains are everything we love about this northern territory: solitude, jaw-dropping landscapes and untouched beauty. It’s a part of Canada few of us get to see in person—all the better for the continued existence this pristine slice of nature.
