Florian Ledoux’s Aerial Arctic

The Arctic is one of the least explored places on the planet, yet it remains one of the most fragile and susceptible to climate change. Photographer Florian Ledoux worked with National Geographic to create a series that showcases this beautiful land with aerial and ground-based images. The photos showcase narwhals, polar bears and walruses in their natural habitat, plus some truly epic icebergs. The photos are from the very north reaches of Canada and Greenland.
