Autumn Aurora & Wildlife Camp

Copyright notice

This remarkable photo of the northern lights reflecting off the nightime water with our camp aircraft and wildlife spike camp in the foreground was taken along the shores of Chesterfield Inlet Nunavut by photographer David C. Olson during a 'Musk-ox, Autumn Colours & Aurora' expedition to Canada's Far North. A coleman gas lantern was lit inside the tent, reflecting light on the Cessna floatplane. David writes:

"Our base camp was set up in a strategic location to see caribou, musk-ox and many other animal species of the north. The camp was set up to make our stay in the Arctic as comfortable as possible. Sleeping accommodations in our tents and the food were excellent. Both exceeding my expectations. I have traveled to remote area of Alaska to the rainforests of central America and I was very happy with the camp life here. Our days were filled with hikes and boat exploration for wildlife and history of this ancient realm. After long days on the Tundra we could always look forward to a feast every night to fill our hunger. Every night the sunset was an incredible hues of purple, reds and oranges which reflected on the water and tundra with its magnificent light. At night the photographic opportunities began again, the Aurora Borealis was in full force climbing out of my sleeping bag at 1;00 am was well worth it. I spent several hours each night capturing this awesome display of light and color. At times I would be surrounded by the northern lights confused on which direction to point the camera. With the silence of night time in the arctic you could almost here the light's dancing in the sky. All of my dreams and expectations of this land and wildlife were realized with Tom and his wonderful staff they are all very professional, and that is definitely what you want at an outpost like this. I hope to return to this magical land with Tom..."
