These majestic light pillars near Yellowknife are another jewel of the Arctic! Rare as they are, when they appear it becomes an otherworldly phenomenon. Enjoy!
These two images from Alex de Vries – magnifico and Discover Churchill are timeless and electrifying all at once. The Ithaca comes back to life as it slowly decays in the Hudson Bay up the coast from the town of Churchill. The ice and lights seem to give the forlorn ship inertia to launch itself into the frigid, glowing sky in search of Franklin and his doomed expedition.
The following aurora borealis shot in the dark is one of surprise and emergence from the boreal forest into the frozen tundra underneath the green sky of the timeless Arctic frontier. Churchill lies on the edge of a white and green world that the mind uses as a jumping-off point to dream of adventure in this world of raw nature! Enjoy!

Arctic Hares have an amazing camouflage of white and black-tipped ears that not only blend in with the snow and rocks but provide a unique target for raptors to focus on instead of the body flesh. Many times when attacked the hare can evade by having extra seconds to find shelter. Churchill has Arctic Hares throughout the tundra year-round!
Back in the Polar Bear Capital of the World for the start of aurora season and the buzz around town is that a bear was spotted on the Churchill River about 20 min away from town!
