Aurora watch

By Pierre Dunnigan

I fell in love with the North a long time ago, for the snow and some skiing in the mountains. And then, for the light and the beautiful landscapes; and I kept coming back for the warm friendship of its inhabitants and the feeling of freedom while traveling on the land. As a photographer, I learned to read the light! I am always on the lookout for its magic, in colors, in patterns, in its contrasts; my goal is to bring a reflection on the beauty of nature and its inhabitants; my challenge is to show space and motion; my vision is that « light is always there »! This will be my ninth participation as Ivakkak’s photographer. I hope you enjoy my pictures, I will post the images I like the most.

  1. Pierre each year your photos are the best in a race where you are working and not on a holiday sight seeing 🙂 The borealis on the first night sky with the stars is amazing. Huskie dog sleeping and sun set on the horizon is beautiful colour. A special photo of the mushers and officials in a circle with the shadows remind me of Inuit ancestors always present. The wind blowing snow over the land and the sun reflecting off the ice is most awesome.
