Aurora Focus Returns to Churchill

After what seems like weeks of blizzard news from Churchill, the main focus of this time of year has returned with some exquisite and intriguing northern lights images from Natural Habitat Adventures guide Drew Hamilton. Drew and his travelers ventured out on the ice pack of Bird Cove just outside of town to the wreck of the MV Ithaca. This favorite pilgrimage destination allows for incredible photos that highlight the waves of aurora borealis over the frozen Hudson Bay. Enjoy these cool pics and look for more northern lights posts and less snow news! Enjoy.

Unique Churchill Northern Lights Photos

Magnificent northern lights have been flooding the sky lately in Churchill and surrounding northern regions. Full panorama views have been the norm as opposed to last years waves of isolated aurora borealis. By all means the aurora last season was by far the most consistent year to date in Churchill. However, this season has produced incredible northern lights with more full sky – filled evenings. With still a few weeks to go we can’t wait to see what comes next! Enjoy!

Why Northern Lights Pics Pop

Quite often when photographing northern lights, the surrounding features matter more in the making of an awesome image.These five shots from Churchill this season all have different facets that accentuate the photo. Typically, the more unique features that bring aurora borealis into the three dimensional world we know, the more enticing the photograph. Northern lights on their own are beautiful though it’s hard to measure up to an image with traditional northern icons. See for yourself which of these sensational northern lights shots catch and hold your eye! Enjoy!
