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!
A couple more photos from Nunavut photographer Michael Davies. He captures some of the most incredible northern lights images I’ve ever seen. These two phenomenal shots of Pangirtung on Baffin Island, population 1,400, look like the town is on fire. With the aurora borealis glimmering in the sky, there seems to be an incredible energy in a most barren and isolated place. It really inspires me to visit this realm of the Arctic. Might be a side trip from Churchill someday!
Wildlife researcher and photographer Brent Stephenson recorded these images in Baffin Island in the far north of Canada. An incredible day around Baffin where a pod of over 100 narwhals followed his vessel around. Even some male narwhals with tusks breaking the water’s surface appeared. Around ten polar bears throughout the day provided constant thrills and photo opportunities. Later a gyrfalcon made a kill in front of the bow viewed through binoculars. What a day in the high Arctic!
