    Shots from the North

    Hello WF members and friends. Time is very limited as I pull long hours re-supplying the diamond mines in the Northwest Territories. I have had an opportunity to catch some great stills as we run north across the ice and thought I would share a few.


    Above: Raven flies around truck looking for handout.



    I took this shot at Lockhart Lake after we were stranded on the ice while crews worked to repair the roads.

    Fuel truck runs North across the horizon


    That's all for now. Got another 16 hour day ahead, but I'll update this thread with new pics as time allows.

    All the best!

    I enjoy your photography and these are fabulous shots too. How awesome that you are an ice road trucker. I used to watch a television programme about ice road truckers which I found captivating and terrifying at the same time. That programme opened up a whole new world that I never knew existed previously. It’s wonderful to get an insight into that world, so thanks for sharing.
    Always have a dream that is longer than a lifetime.

    This is my new Pal "Jackanoob." He visits me on every trip now. If you read my book you'll understand why I called him Jackanoob, if you haven't then you'll have something to consider.

    Goodnight.

    More shots from the North.

    Night shot taken on a portage between lakes. Came out looking more like a martian landscape.





    Same portage taken same night.



    I call this one solitude
