winter’s rolling in

The first snowfall reminds me how much I miss the days when I was a remote camp cook and also how glad I am to no longer do such a crazy job. Working in the wilderness can come with some very bad weather!

Me, around 30 years old in one of my luxurious tent camp kitchens made from plywood inside a canvas tent. On the stove is a pan of cinnamon buns on the rise.

The northwest corner of British Columbia is spectacularly beautiful. This was the view from the tent camp where I was working.

Mid-day in Yellowknife

Shot taken in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. In the Arctic, for several weeks during the winter months, the sun never actually rises but only appears just beneath the horizon. The daylight consists of these sunrises/sunsets where the clouds are lit up from below for about two to four hours. It’s the only brightness you get so it’s a riveting spectacle.
