Mainly Photography but a little of everything at times

Yesterday’s sunrise or not.

with 2 comments

Yesterday, I was up early and went out to capture sunrise. Here in Yellowknife the sun was supposed to rise at 7:41 am. I was going to try to capture the sun rising above Latham Island and Yellowknife’s Old Town. I went to the Giant Mine Boat Launch and waited. I watched the sky and the clock and there was no one around except John Mayer, lol. I got out of the truck and got my camera gear set and ready but, it wasn’t going to be much of a sunrise. It was overcast and grey. I captured a few images there even though it wasn’t the scene I was hoping for. I then drove the Ingraham Trail to the end and returned toward Yellowknife. The entire time I was really just scouting new photo shoot locations. There were a couple of places that looked very favourable and I made mental note of them. When I was almost back to Yellowknife, about 2 1/2 hours from when I left, I remembered a location that Steve Schwarz and I had discussed a few weeks before. I had to stop and check it out. When I arrived I parked the truck and gathered my gear. It was only about 3 or 4 minutes to get to the location and it was amazing. Better than I ever thought it would be. I grabbed quite a few images there during my early morning trip and I can’t wait to do some Aurora work there but, for that I better wait for Steve. For those of you who want to know where it is, well I guess you will have to watch and follow Steve and I around for a while. I am not sure if I am ready to tell everyone just yet. For now here are some images from my Sunday morning drive. Enjoy, thanks again for hanging out and as always Happy Shooting.

  1. I know that place! Beautiful shots, Mr. S.
    Did you drive up? Did your vehicle scrape?

    • Lol, No Darren, I didn’t drive up. I wasn’t sure if the wheel base on my truck was too long for the first part of the trail. I am sure that once out of the ditch and over that first mound, I could easily make it up there.
