For a very interesting summer or two Will spent 6 weeks flying out of Yellowknife, on Great Slave Lake, bringing the guests to an eco-tourist lodge on Whitefish Lake, 100 miles to the east.
During the week he was based at the lodge, flying guests out to the tundra in search of wildlife to photograph - here a small group of Muskox.
He described flying over this landscape as fascinating. The summer season is scarcely 6 weeks, and by early August the low scrubby vegetation is turning red as 'fall' arrives. The open gravelly ridge in this picture is an esker.
His most interesting reports to us were of time spent on the ground with National Geographic photographers in search of Arctic Foxes. I've only been that far north once, but it is a fascinating landscape!
These are the cute little 'Sic-Sics', the Arctic Ground Squirrel whose warning call is 'tsik-tsik'.
And this is a somewhat blurry wolf cub they came upon.
And in Will's words, this is a Grizzly, 'that almost ate us' - perhaps too close for comfort.
And the almost obligatory picture of the plane at the dock as the moon rose.
