Backlighting reveals the soft contours of a valley in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park that used to be covered by glaciers but is now blanketed with conifers and glacial lakes. This did not happen as a result of the accelerated climate change we’re witnessing now, but it gives us an idea of the historic landscape transformation we’re going to witness in many places across the Arctic. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of our changing planet.

Objects in mirror are closer than they appear... well, sometimes that’s not always the case! Different perspective of Mt. Drum in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #wrangell #alaska

Ah thank you so much to everyone who has nabbed an original drawing from my solo show at @lightgreyartlab ❤️ There are just two small studies left in the series of eleven still lives, and this lil babe in the center is one of them! This is a special piece in the series for me. During my two week artist residency at the @wrangellmountainscenter I had the chance to go on a backcountry overnight camp with two badass park rangers. The hike out involved crossing glaciers and bushwhacking into a part of the park where grizzlies had been seen the day before. At one of our stops for water, I spotted a bunch of slow moving gentle freshwater snails. Not wanting to remove any of the shells from where they lay, I snapped a photo of one for a still life later. That little shell is the only object in the whole still life series that was imagined into place - everything else was posed in my studio and drawn from life before being returned outdoors to decompose. ✏️ UPDATE - this one sold, but the very last study from the series (that I will feature here soon) is still available via the @lightgreyartlab website, or in person at their Minneapolis gallery.

Wake up and warm up to a cup of coffee at Wrangell St Elias National Park’s public use cabin. #optoutside #rei #alaska #wrangellsteliasnationalpark @wrangellstenps

When you can't avoid the crevasse: downclimb into it, stem across the abyss, and climb out the other side. If only all of Life's obstacles were so easily managed! #puckerup #dontfall #kennicottguides

Sharing a rope with one of my fellow @kennicott_wilderness_guides @jpsteyaert and Matt Emht on our climb of Pyramid Peak, St. Elias mountains. I'd be surprised to hear that this peak has seen more than a couple ascents (if that!) since our trip 10 years ago. In a wilderness as vast as this one, there are a helluva lot of mountains to choose from.

Thanks to Sonja @thenationalparksgirl for the great adventure. ・・・
I found this emoji in the wild! 🏃🏻 His name is @kellychristianglascott and in this photo he’s searching for the best route around the crevasses of the Nizina Glacier. It wasn’t too long until he found the route and we were on our way again, navigating a labyrinth of ice.

📍Mt Donoho in Wrangell - St Elias NP is only 6696ft - not a very high mountain at all - but after two days traveling across glaciers I was in no mood or strength to try to reach that summit. I hear there is actually a trail that goes half way up and then the rest is a scramble to the top. I bet the view up there must be 👌 maybe another day 🐶 this is a photo from June 2017. #findyourpark #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #wrangellstelias

The most beautiful place I have been to. The most scenic roads I have driven on. Himalayas are still the most beautiful and majestic mountains I have seen but Alaska offers not just the mountains. It offers the most beautiful combination of snow clad mountains, the pristine ocean and magnificent glaciers. #NoFilter #MountDrum #WrangellStEliasNationalPark #Drive #Glennallen #Alaska #Mountains #RoadTrip #Anchorage #Fairbanks #ilovealaska

Just a couple hours hike from Kennicott, Upper Donoho Lakes is one of the best places in #wrangellsteliasnationalpark to relax for a afternoon or an over night trip
