The Dempster in somewhat more detail

Here we are. Some shots along the way. This is mostly landscape stuff. Animals and reflections and aurora and some people shots are later. There are some other landscapes with HDR or panorama shots that will show up when I process them at home.

This bridge is the start of the Dempster highway. We caught up to those guys on the bikes later, at the Arctic circle. The photos are taken along the way. Not that there is any other road.






This is not our van, so you don't need to worry that they left me behind.

Big wide open spaces. This is actually a side road leading to a radio tower. We walked on the tundra. It's very difficult.




A repeat shot, just because I'm so pleased by it. And you might have missed it yesterday.


In case you wondered what sunset at the Arctic Circle looks like.



Shortly later was moonrise. It never got much higher than that. Later during the aurora storm I was trying to get the moon and aurora in the same shot, but it went below the horizon.


The finest establishment in Eagle Plains.

Just some random views along the way.





It looks like the road is going through a lake, but it's only a puddle a few inches across.






Our awesome guide Sandra noticed this cloud rainbow.





 Along the way back we ran into the smoke from a forest fire from 100 K away. It's really smoky now. This is that same bridge, and we are done the Dempster.

  1. I'm catching up on your trip posts with my coffee this morning. The northern lights are certainly impressive, but I'm loving all of the browns and golds-the colours are gorgeous. I'm glad you had such a great trip!
