Sunset on the Tundra

This beautiful sunset photo was taken during the autumn period by photographer Steve Barger on the remote tundra of the Canadian Far North. Sunsets here this far north lasts for hours! Depending where on the tundra, there are occassional patchy stands of trees growing in the sandy esker hollows, such as shown in this photo. Also in some cases trees grow in many of the river bottoms all the way to the Arctic ocean hundreds of kilometers from the treeline. Steve Barger writes:

"We were glad we got to spend 2 weeks with you and your top-notch staff this past August & September on the barrenlands! Staying there for two weeks provided us with opportunities to watch the tundra change from green and brown... to spectacular red, yellow and orange. We also experienced about every type of weather, from rain and wind to snow showers to clear blue skies. We got some great photographs of the Northern Lights which we saw every clear night... ..and of mirror reflections
on the esker kettles
. The time you spent telling us about the land, its history and people and your experiences there, gave us an even deeper appreciation of this magnificent wilderness. Being on the tundra with Inuksuit, musk-ox, caribou, wolves and even a wolverine, was truly unique. We especially appreciated the efforts you and your staff made to "go the extra mile" to provide us with the best opportunities, including the overnight stay at a 'spike' camp, where we got to see several herds
of caribou at the water crossing just outside of the camp
. Locating musk-oxen from the plane and stalking them on the ground was unforgettable! The staff was awesome. They made great meals and were terrific guides and naturalists. Thanks for a great trip!! We are looking forward to our 3rd trip to the North."
