Back home in the suburbs of Ottawa, I miss the beautiful views we enjoyed of Great Slave Lake while staying in a 10th floor apartment in Yellowknife. No matter the weather, we always had a great view. When I visited Yellowknife back in January, this lake had a steady stream of cars and trucks crossing it on the ice road.
Here's a view of Yellowknife taken near our apartment. You can see there is lots of that rugged Canadian Shield encircling the lake.
We always had a view of the charming houseboats that some locals live in both winter and summer. My zoom lens brought these closer.
I took these shots as we were flying out of Yellowknife. There's the city, the Lake, and lots of golden birches and poplars growing on rocky shield.
Further up it all becomes about the colour and pattern. The wonderful weather that day made it very bittersweet to leave.
Back to reality. I'll post soon on what's coming up!
