A look into how an idea of a photo comes in to reality.

It was a ridiculous idea from the start. Travel to the high arctic in pursuit of a single image a skier silhouetted against a solar eclipse. Lasting only two and a half minutes, the odds of having clear skies during the eclipse were low. Despite the odds being stacked against them, the Salomon Freeski TV team set out on a three week expedition to Svalbard, Norway encountering polar bears, abandoned Russian towns and even climate change. Persistence, preparation and a positive attitude guaranteed nothing as March 20, 2015, dawned.
