Midnight Sun in Nunavut

This breathtaking photograph of the midnight sun emerging from the clouds on the horizon in Hall Beach, Nunavut is one of the best shots we have ever seen of the northern summer phenomena! The community has a population of around 850 and is located in the Qikiqtaaluk Region. Enjoy! The region is the easternmost area of Nunavut and the name is the Inuktitut word for Baffin Island. Enjoy!

Four Epic Nunavut Photos

Four pretty cool photos from Nunavut. These northern pics capture the incredible light of the northern region. The stark vastness of the landscape and the solitude evoked from the photographs is striking and soothing for those in a hectic environment. There’s no place like the far north to escape the frenetic pace of the modern technological world. Churchill is the frontier town and gateway to the awesome north country!

Churchill Sunday Photo

People have moved to certain regions just to get a license plate from that place. Would you move to Nunavut to get one of these? Let us know? Gasoline prices might be a factor in that decision! Churchill prices have been near $10/gallon at times.

Churchill Photo of the Week – Caribou Herd

The Photo of the Week comes from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut taken by Dustin IInik. The magnificence of the northern caribou herd is striking when viewed across the wide open tundra of northern Canada. I personally, at some point, would like to try and film footage from within the migration itself by possibly rigging a fixed camera in a position where it wouldn’t get destroyed. Churchill summer and Arctic summer on the whole reveal incredible wildlife experiences that show themselves when you least expect them to. Enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day from Churchill

Wishing all the dad’s a great day and special Father’s Day time with the kids! This beluga whale pod is all males looking for schools of capelin in the Churchill River. Enjoy!

Five Magnifico Churchill Sunset Photos

These five fantastic shots from Alex De Vries – Magnifico highlight the epic sunsets Churchill routinely sees this time of year. Maybe these images convey hope for the residents of Churchill and a solution for the damaged rail line to the south…a silver lining of sorts. Nothing can derail the natural beauty of the Hudson Bay region in Churchill! Enjoy!
