This classic northern image of a warmly dressed child in Pangnirtung, Nunavut. The simplicity of life in the north forces us to consider how complex life becomes here in the lower hemispheres. Survival can be a wonderfully, freeing way of life and every day it’s a part of life for Inuit peoples.
These beautiful photos depicting Arctic life are an inside look to this mysterious nether region of our planet. Life in the north found in its simplest expressions often provide us continuous wonder at the scenes and people as they interact with others and their wild environment. Looking forward to more images of Arctic life!
These three photos from the far north highlight the vastness and mystery of the Arctic and the smallness of a human within the endless landscape.Solitude and quietness are aspects of this land that endure through the ages. This is what draws so many to this magical place…the feeling of being alone and away from all the distractions of feeling and thought.
Churchill is the gateway to the Arctic with the iconic wildlife symbols of this region in the mighty polar bears and ethereal beluga whales gliding effortlessly through the frigid waters of the Hudson Bay. The empty spaces are highlighted with flashes of other wildlife such as migrating birds and Arctic and Red foxes, insects and boreal chorus frogs all softened with an amazing myriad of wildflowers throughout the short summer season. There truly is no place other like the Arctic and sub – Arctic…another world of treasures to be discovered!
As the sun was just about setting, this awesome shot of the inukshuk behind the town complex was captured by Great White Bear Tour’s Dorota Walkoski. The northern lights are just emerging through the beautiful blue veil of daylight and the iconic Churchill landmark evolves into a picturesque scene. Aurora season is going strong in the north!
We can never get enough of these awesome northern lights videos, especially with the spectacular aurora Churchill has been experiencing over the last week or so. Of course, there’s nothing like being under the sky when the lights explode and shimmer across the horizon. Churchill is the most accessible place in the north to get the full effect of this otherworldly phenomena. Enjoy!
