Cold Yet?

Frequent Your Shot contributor Christian Aslund captured this cold-inducing portrait of Renny Bijoux, a youth ambassador from the Seychelles on a Greenpeace North Pole expedition. Aslund said, "The team, most of them without any previous polar experience, skied to the North Pole and lowered a capsule 4.3km onto the sea bed, containing signatories to their campaign to protect the Arctic from industrial development."
