Mike Libecki, Angie Payne, and Ethan Pringle traveled to a remote fjord on the southeast coast of Greenland to climb. Tucked away beneath a looming cirque of granite peaks for two weeks, the three climbers came together through shared experiences and learned that oftentimes climbing is far more than first ascents.
Greenland is, by area, the world's largest island, yet with a population of under 60,000, it is the least densely populated dependency or country in the world. In May 2012, Ben Saunders, Martin Hartley and Alastair Humphreys spent 14 days in Greenland on a training expedition. This was preparation for their expedition in Antarctica next year.
In October 2013 Ben and his team mates will attempt to make the first return journey to the South Pole on foot. At 1,800 miles it will be the longest unsupported polar journey in history. For more information visit bensaunders.com

Reflections from Uyuni is a Time-lapse short film that shows the intrinsic beauty of the salt flat of Uyuni and the province of Potosí in Bolivia.
The reflections produced by the water flooding the area in the rainy season are the main protagonist of Enrique Pacheco's camera, who invites us to dream with impossible images from another world, where the sky meets the earth forming an infinite mirage.
Its area of over 10.000 km2 makes the salt flat of Uyuni the largest one in the world. It is located in the remote province of Potosi in Bolivia, near the Andes, at an altitude of 3.656 m.
In this remote corner of the Earth, a peculiar natural phenomenon occurs - a thin layer of water gathered on a plain of salt turns it into an other-worldly looking glass mirroring the skies above in perfect symmetry. The eerie calmness of the place makes it all the more supernatural, and takes the observer far beyond the familiar.
