This alien land is as merciless as it is beautiful. The spectacular blue water could freeze you to death in an instant. The mountainous glaciers are dangerous when pieces of ice as big as buildings come crashing down. And ferocious animals prowl the land. But alas, there is a tribe of warrior women who rule this unforgiving place. And they are the dominant species. This blonde warrior is the top huntress, and her skills with a crossbow make her a leader. Men are rare, so the women are free with their bodies, wearing skimpy, yet protective clothing.

Wow, Boris' Barbarian paintings seem like a possible inspiration point for this shot. Many try to replicate their beauty, but most fail miserably. Not the case for you! Well done Sir! Took some reading to realize this was not in studio, the model did an amazing job looking comfortable in a hostile environment. Will this fantasy avenue be a regular direction for you?

Oh, yeah I can tell now that I looked at it a bit harder. Cool. Kind of fits the spacey theme you described also.

Stunning surrounding. The blue water is fantastic.
I think this is the best of the three in this series so far because of she is really in the environment and i cannot decide if i want to look at her or the fabulous landscape - for the other two i wasn't sure if it is in a studio or not.

Would have liked to see here with a sword or fantasy axe for even more fantasy cliché. :)

Didn't she complain about the metallic cloth get cold?

I don't agree on xataxxx comment about fitting into the environment. First of all it is a fantasy and second the scandinavians are famous for their blonde hair. Not all nothern ppl are eskimos.

thank you, yes it was a very real place about 5800 feet up on a glacier in alaska... no studio this time

yes she did complain about the metal but she was a trooper and did it and made it look comfortable

Although excellent picture as most of yours I do find that the setting and the model do not fit - arctic climate is natively inhabited by people with a bit darker skin and mostly dark black hair.. A blonde just does not fit. If she would have darker hair she would look more believable.
Just my $0.02
