A work day in Labrador. It was nice to start our traverse on top of this high ridge with lots of outcrop. The wind helps keep the flies to a barable level. Traverses are mostly through thick forest and flies with limitted outcrop so this was a great treat.

Chopper overhead. It pays to wear polarizing eye (lens) protection.
The most spectacular Northern lights I have ever witnessed (Feb,07). The entire sky was drapped by a turbulent flow of mystical green forces. Charged particles sent from eruptions on the sun travel great distances until grabbed by the magnetic poles of Earth and burst into chemical flame in their final moment. Once thought of as great spirits of the Labrador night sky.

I notice what looks like a good shot of Pegasus and Andromeda in the background. Labrador must be a wonderful place for viewing the constellations.
