What an inspriration. Since I haven't really photographed much in the past year, everything is very new to me right now. I've been trying to stop and think before I do anything lately. Trying to focus on what I should be doing and not just capturing what I'm seeing willy-nilly.

We went up north to Maine a few weekends ago and I had a lot of my manual lenses with me. It was making me think about what I needed to do. Like picking up my camera for the first time.

I love your photos here. Simple, yet powerful.

At work today, I walked into the office area where we are doing some Canadian work. Up on one of the walls, was a map of Canada, with all the DEW line sites located. So, I stood there, remembering that you were up there and trying to remember the site that was in some of your images. Then I saw it - the "T" name that I could not pronounce. I didn't realize that its in the Yukon! For some reason, I thought that it was much further east and on the Atlantic or Hudson Bay. For some funny reason I thought that it was in Nova Scotia. So much for my Canadian geography.

Anyway, I brought up Google Earth and zoomed in on Tuktoyaktuk. Then I started clicking on some of the images icons that Panoramio had on the area. One question - what is the big round hole up there?

Have you posted any of your images to Panoramio?

I really like your images....
Actually it is just east of the Yukon in the North West Territories. The only hole I can think of up here is a drilling caisson in the harbour (a relic from the 1980s I believe). It is possible that the pingos (which are hills with an ice core) may look like holes from straight up, they are quite round.

I second that. Finally we see images without snow and this is hilarious with all these snowmobiles grounded for the time being. I love it
