Arctic Wanderings Feb 2020 Part II -- "Northern Lights of Churchill Canada"
Part II of our Journey to see the Polar Lights
"Dave's Dog Sled Camp" -- On our last night it warmed up to a balmy 24’F but the cloudy daytime skies cleared for us right after dinner so we headed out to Dave's Dog Sled Camp for some crazy fast moving Aurora activity that moved from one end of the sky to the other. One minute the sky was on fire with dancing lights and the next it would be gone, only to pop up again in another spot. Dave has a number of sled trails thru the forest as well as a Teepee and a Trappers Tent which we lit up with a lantern as a foreground for our Aurora photography. Well after midnight we decided to call it quits but on the way back to town we spotted some Aurora activity out over Hudson Bay so we headed over to Churchill's famous Inuksuk rock sculpture for a couple of shots although the clouds were moving in on us so we headed back to our hotel a little after 2am.

Northern Lights over the sled dog pens. Sometimes the lights would get the Dogs all worked up barking.

WOW...thanks for sharing. We went to Iceland in Mar 2019 to see the northern lights and the beautiful country. We saw them on the flight there and then saw them twice while there. It wasn't as cold (coldest day was 27. Most days 32)as Churchill and the lights weren't anywhere near as big as your pictures. They were way off in the distance. Guess I'll have to plan a trip to Churchill.
LOVE IT wow Great photos again thank you for sharing
