Northern lights over Ice lake in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. Manny Noble photo.
Even though polar bear season is just around the corner with the possibility of viewing northern lights on clear nights, we can’t help but look ahead to January when the heart of aurora borealis season begins in Churchill. Once the Hudson Bay is frozen over, northern lights are fairly constant in the night skies of the far north. This recent shot above Ice Lake in Cape Dorset, Nunavut is just a sample of what can be seen in the heart of winter throughout the Arctic and sub – Arctic. What an incredible vista!
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 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!

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.
