From time-to-time, the people who live here ask themselves what it is about the North that keeps them here. I think it's a long list of reasons, both subtle and overt, and that the list varies from person to person. Others have proclaimed that, for them, it's the quality of light and how it casts a magical veil across the land.
I think that's a big part of it.
I took these pictures on my latest road trip.
Over the mountain on the way out of Ross River.
Dusty skies and shadows at the Five Finger Rapids.
Sunset at Stewart Crossing.
A mountain near Fox Lake.
Orange skies at night, musher's delight?
There's no need for special lenses or photoshopping here. There's just something about that northern light.
