Northern Lights Show.

     Our trip to Miquelon Lake Provincial Park was the first of a few we've done this summer with friends from college. The first night was a spectacular sunset but I didn't have time to explore the area to find a good perspective facing west so I did the best I could with what I found. The next day sunset was equally impressive and on my way to finding a location a massive beaver chewed down a tree right in front of us and dragged it across the path. I wasn't prepared at all so I was pretty disappointed with the quick snap. After our beaver encounter I managed to find a peacfeul area to catch the sunset reflecting on the lone cloud in the sky. Overall it was already a pretty good weekend of catching up with friend, camping and photography but the main event was still to come! 

     As you can see in the highlighted image there was an unforgettable Northern Lights show! I was blown away by the dancing, movement and colours. I've watched the Aurora a lot but nothing like this. That night I think it was nearly 3am before I called it quits but I easily could have laid in the dirt staring up all night. I'm so thankful for living far enough North to be treated to a Northern Lights show every once in a while. I'm curious if there will be a day that they'll simply stop showing up? Anyways, thanks for reading and as always I'd love to hear any feedback you have on the photos or if you think its possible for the Northern lights to dissapear permenately one day. 

Digital Media Class Adventure:Abraham Lake.

Abraham Lake was a destination that promised bubbles frozen in the ice but in my opinion we experienced much more. The first night we arrived to the camp, rather than going to bed, we went out and were surprised by what we was saw next. Below are some images from the first night that instantly made the trip worth it.

After staying out until 1pm the first night we woke up at 5am to catch the sunrise. This was a struggle, although we were rewarded greatly by what we witness during our time on the lake. We ventured out to the middle of the ice where our hopes of finding trapped bubbles was crushed. To our fortune there was a gaping crack that we possibly got too close to. The images below are of that risky but amazing experience! 

Overall the weekend was awesome and I came away with some great images. Also, it felt like everyone in the program grew closer together and were able to enhance our skills immensely! The last images are a few random ones that I thought were decent and summarized a few other things we did during out time there. I would love to hear your feedback and which images are your favourite.
