Sometime the clouds are all in the right place to catch the golden light from the sunset, and it looks like the sky is on fire.

Despite our current unseasonably warm winter weather, this is a reminder that Old Man Winter might be hiding around the next corner. Taken a few years ago, I liked the contrast between the warmth of the late day sun and the cool shadows from the drifts.

I have always been fascinated by unusual cloud formations. I see them where ever I go. I find them interesting and like to think about how they were formed. This time the wavy lines seemed to sort of line up with the road, which gave the view an thought provoking perspective.

I saw some of the most amazing sunsets and sunrises in the Northwest Territories. The sun is not very high in the sky at this time of year and the low angle gives you a long time to see the sun come up or go down.  Shades of pink and ochre transition to azure and deep blue in the clear cold evening. As I recall it was about –25º Celsius when the exposure was made.

When you are travelling on a frozen lake the landscape is basically flat. On the land there are low hills and ridges that vary as you move along. The light is amazingly subtle in the north, with pastel shades coloring the sky.
