The Super moon, early on Sunday morning, was spectacular. 1:30am was the darkest part of our night (20 hours of sunlight on this day) and the moon was bright and orange. It was one of the most colourful moons I had seen in a long time.

The sunset was setting behind me over Back Bay which left some interesting coloring and an almost full moon over on Yellowknife Bay. I was lucky enough to catch a boat coming home.

I was out in the yard on the weekend and there were several birds chirping away like they were giving me a rough time for being in the yard with them…almost like I was disturbing them. I caught this guy giving me the evil eye.

Looking through the trees and the edge of Great Slave Lake. The water is flowing around the outside but the middle of the lake is still frozen. It takes a good while for the lake to fully thaw.

Looking up the hill and the trees before the leave bud and bloom. It is always an interesting time of year between the snow and the greenery of summer. Once the leaves start to bud it doesn’t take them long to actually bloom and then everything is...

Part of the old west in Yellowknife. The old carriage is up on some rocks along the highway just outside of Yellowknife. I believe the location is a equestrian farm where the kids of Yellowknife can go ride horses. You wouldn’t expect that in the n...

We were driving along the Ingraham Trail out towards Prelude Lake when we saw this little Inukshuk  (Inuksuk) on the the rocks beside the road. As everyone knows, I love Inukshuks and even have one as part of a self designed tattoo I sport on my...

Bella  and  I were walking around Frame Lake, on the path that leads from City Hall, and I came across this ball of ice just suspended up in the boughs of this pine tree. It was funny to see it there in the round shape because there was lot...

We traveled the Ingraham Trail during spring break and went out to Cameron Falls on the Sunday. The falls had begun flowing for the spring season and it was a bright sunny day. We arrived at the falls at the perfect time as the sun was focused direct...

The ice carvings at this year’s Long John Jamboree were pretty good. This was one of my favorites. I liked this picture because the light behind this carving was good and you can see the elephant carvings in the background.
