Full days rest in Kangirsuk

Today was a bright clear sunny day, but windy and crispy cold except for the dogs, they seems to be sheltered from the wind in the little valley near the bridge  they rest and soak up the sunshine.

Musher Sandy Jaaka made the decision to send one of his female dog back to his community of Kangiqsujuaq, because she started to be in heat;  Sandy didn’t want to take any chances of getting into trouble, or the dog getting loose, so he sent it home.
Elijag Simionie Jr, came to look at the dogs and was telling his stories about his dog when he was young,  how he had to feed them milk as very small puppies, and what names he gave to them, all from sky features like atsanik, ayarola, moon, clouds, etc.

Ivakkak Official Photographer at Ivakkak
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.
