Hello! I live in central Canada and a small part of my work is to travel around the prairie provinces and the Arctic. I have always had an interest in photography and now that digital age is here, I can share what I see. I have a number of cameras that I use depending on where I go. I currently have a Canon T4I and a Canon G12. I am especially fond of the Canadian north after spending 10 years working in the Arctic in my younger days so many of the pictures are of the north.

Hi, Can you please move this photo to it's correct location? This is the arctic and there are no trees here. thanks

Excellent view from above, i like it!

Yessiree BOB.... 10 million ounces was the claim. Due to so many environmental issues the mine never started production. One of the managers stated that the company had invested 1.6 Billion Dollars up to the time of our visit. Everything is being sold and moved out with exception of the buildings and other infrastructure. It will be maintained until another buyer comes along or the issues are resolved.

"**Newmont Mining Corporation is putting its plans for the Hope Bay gold project near Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, on hold.

Last month, the company announced expanded plans for its project that would have meant new airstrips, all-weather roads, hundreds of jobs, and a new Inuit Impact and Benefit agreement with the Kitikmeot Inuit Association.

The company announced Tuesday that all development and exploration work will be postponed indefinitely while the project is under review.

Chris Hanks, vice-president of Environmental Affairs for Hope Bay Mining, a Newmont subsidiary, said in a news release that employees, contractors, government officials and regulatory bodies have been or are being notified.**"

Hey Bob, I put some new stuff for you to chew on! See if you can figure out this solar wind gear. Cheers tim

"**Hope Bay is a 50-mile (80-km) greenstone belt in the Canadian territory of Nunavut. It is located in the Kitikmeot region, which includes seven Inuit hamlets and our outreach office in the largest community, Cambridge Bay. The territory of Nunavut (one-fifth of Canada's land mass) was established in 1999. The Inuit population is native to the area and, under the Nunavut Land Claim Agreement, hold the surface and many of the mineral rights in the Hope Bay belt.

There are currently three identified deposits (Doris, Madrid and Boston) that are being evaluated as potential resources, with the main camp at Doris.**"

**"The term “incoherent scatter” refers to the way in which transmitted radio waves are reflected by ambient electrons in the atmosphere. Using high-powered transmitters and sensitive receivers, scientists can analyze the backscattered signals to determine the density, temperature, and velocity of electrons in the ionosphere over several hundreds of kilometers of altitude. Where other incoherent scatter radars use a single high-powered transmitter, AMISR uses an array of antennas, each of which is driven by a specially designed, solid-state, 500-watt transmitter.

AMISR can be operated remotely and also collect data from several directions at the same time. Currently, the radar is being used to study the aurora borealis and other dynamic features of the high-latitude ionosphere. By measuring the electric fields and particles at high latitudes, scientists can study how the magnetosphere, an immense comet-shaped structure around the Earth that extends tens of thousands of kilometers into space, changes in response to solar storms. This is important for predicting space weather, which can disrupt technical systems such as electric power distribution, navigation, communication, and aviation.**"

Thank you very much Johnnie! Hope your Sunday is a good one as well! Come back and visit again. Cheers tim

Timothy K: like this photo an thanks to join us in our group, Buildings of the World. Greetings, Juan Emilio

I wouldn't want one in my back yard. They produce noise and besides taking away from natures scenery they kill off a lot of birds. I know it's good for mother earth but they should be parked out of site. I was in Kingston Ontario at a hotel on the St. Lawrence and they had a group of them on an island. It really ruins picture taking trying to capture the local scenery.
