March has arrived. Time for ice road trips with the dogs. Sun is setting 7 minutes later each day! #sunset #husky #greatslavelake #explorecanada #extraordinaryyk #spectacularnwt #horizon

NACC is so funny. Iman and her million-dollar smile came by for a photo shoot and to share why she commemorated 2 seat plates. Her inscriptions are “Your presence is your power” and “Conquer from within.” “We all play a role in supporting the arts. By showing up, you’re supporting and transforming the artistic world. NACC was one of the first stages I performed on when I moved to Yellowknife. Since then, I’ve watched some of my closest friends grow up on that stage to become award-winning artists. Sitting in the audience, I’ve watched their personal journeys unfold as they revealed their creations, sometimes for the first time. I’m forever grateful to have witnessed those magical moments of growth and transformation.” . #thenacc #spectacularnwt #extraordinaryyk #yellowknife #theatre #thearts #nwtarts #community #performingarts

Patricia Slighte is our March Artist of the Month. "Travelling extensively through northern Canada I am deeply moved by this beautiful environment. In 2015 I won 2nd place in the People’s Choice Awards in the Salt Spring Island National Art Prize for a print called “Changes” which was inspired by the pristine beauty of winter in the Canadian North as it changes into spring."⠀ ⠀ #nwtarts #artist #spectacularnwt #extraordinaryyk #artistofthemonth

Aurora and Milky Way Above the Cameron River Friday night while waiting for the real Aurora show to start we were treated to a small show with lots of color along with the highly visible Milky Way with the Cameron River flowing below. At -5°C it was about 8° warmer than the previous weekend. #nikon #d850 #rokinon #astrophotography #auroraborealis #aurora #yzf #yellowknife #canada #cbcnwt #cangeoshare #cbcnorth #cangeotravel #canadalife #explorecanada #earthpix #shareyourweather #spectacularnwt #sharecanadapics #rokinon #rokinon24mm #nightphotography #natgeoyourshot #naturephotography #nwtaurora #northernlights #northernliving #natgeolandscape #nightsky #thecanadiancollective #extraordinaryyk

The Bracket The show last Sunday continued onto our third stop of the night out on Tibbett Lake. Standing on a rock face, 30 feet above the lake in the dark was scary enough but the sound of the ice cracking and echoing made it that much more intense. Add to that the sound of a fox making the noise of a screaming baby, it was definitely intense at times. #nikon #d850 #sigma #astrophotography #auroraborealis #aurora #yzf #yellowknife #explorecanada #earthpix #canada #cbcnwt #cangeoshare #cbcnorth #cangeotravel #sigma14mm #sharecangeo #shareyourweather #spectacularnwt #sharecanadapics #nightphotography #natgeoyourshot #northernliving #northernlights #nwtaurora #nikon_canada #nikoncanada #extraordinaryyk

Frosty morning heading up the YK river to Tartan Rapids. It was a cold and wet summer with a quick shift to a cool fall/early winter and some may be mildly “disappointed”, yet there’s still always so much beauty revealed in these times #tartanrapids #yellowknife #river #nwt #canada #spectacularnwt #ykonline #extraordinaryyk #extraordinarynwt #nwtoutdoors #neverstopexploring #northof60 #lifeisbetteroutside #alwaysoutside #fishing #esquif #fallcolours

Arch Over the Rapids We went out last night to a place I have wanted to go for a long while to shoot Aurora. The Aurora didn't disappoint and started about 9:00 and about 900 shots later from 4 different locations at 2:00am it started to finally slow down. What a night. #nikon #d850 #sigma #auroraborealis #astrophotography #aurora #yzf #yellowknife #sigma14mm #spectacularnwt #shareyourweather #sigmacanada #sharecangeo #nightphotography #natgeoyourshot #naturephotography #natgeolandscape #northernliving #northernlights #nwtaurora #nightsky #nikon_canada #natgeo #natgeotravel #canada #cbcnorth #cbcnwt #thecanadiancollective #extraordinaryyk

The Aurora is always dancing here in Yellowknife. The beauty is so breathtaking, that the experience of even seeing them once is enough to make you believe in magic. #northof60 #yellowknife #extraordinaryyk #nothernlights #aurora #magic

Wolastoqey opera singer Jeremy Dutcher kicks off the season this Saturday. Jeremy Dutcher is a classically trained operatic tenor and composer who takes every opportunity to blend his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, traditional, and pop to form something entirely new. Dutcher’s debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, involves the rearrangement of early 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community. “Many of the songs were lost because our musical tradition was suppressed by the Canadian government. I'm doing this work as there's only about a hundred Wolastoqey speakers left. It's crucial that we're using our language because, if you lose the language, you're losing an entire distinct way of experiencing the world.” #yellowknife #spectacularnwt #extraordinaryyk #music #nwt #indigenous

That was one awesome Sun Dog and Sun Halo all in one. In addition there was a ring around the top of the sky. Thanks to Eugene for sending me a text letting me know that it was out there. For those who are interested: These are all standard ice halos and arcs, a pretty awesome display of light. From top to bottom, you can see: an upper tangent arc (above the halo), parhelic circle (horizontal arc through the sundogs), a 22º halo, sundogs (parhelia), and finally, infralateral arcs on both sides that look like rainbows. :) Depending on the position of the sun and the shape/size/quantity of the ice crystals, you can get even more or different arcs and halos. #yzf #yellowknife #sundog #sundogs #sunhalo #spectacularnwt @cbcnorth @cabinradio #sharenatgeo #imagescanada #bbcearth #skyscape #skyphotos #weatherchannel #global_nature #bestcaptureglobal #extraordinaryyk
