Visible aurora January 23, 2012. Temp -35C. Camera (Nikon D90) not happy!
When skies are clear and dark, aurora is almost always visible at this latitude.
However, this year (2012) the aurora was particularly bright. This display
went on for HOURS and at times covered the entire sky. Even for us folks
up here who are used to seeing aurora regularly, this night was especially
awe-inspiring! Still photos do not capture it properly.
Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus). I think she likes me! Shot < 1km from shack.
Perigrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) 4 km from shack.
Arctic hare (Lepus arcticus). Photo shot .002 km from shack.
Midnight, July 21.
November 22. Water still warm, air very cold -27C, creates "sea smoke".
Sun always close to the horizon and never loses its orange glow this
time of year. Shot 27-Dec at 1235 hrs.
