Hey, the sun is up. Great day in the North. Thanks for sharing Lynette. Allan
It is, and our days are getting longer all the time. Sunset was at 8:20 yesterday and sunrise at 7. Soon I’ll be complaining about the midnight sun …
How do they decide when to close the road? Inquiring minds want to know.
Ground Penetrating Radar. That way, they can find out the exact thickness of the ice and how much weight it can bare. Cheers.
Thanks for that. Sounds better than a stethoscope and a tuning fork.
Hahaha. 😀 Nope. The old way was to drill lots of holes and measure the ice thickness. You need 43 cm (17 inches) for vehicles and 61 (24 inches) for aircraft. We have an active ice runway in Yellowknife as well. Cheers.
Great exercise in perspective.
Thank you. This type of view is a theme in my photos. A road disappearing into the vanishing point has always piqued my curiosity.
Stuart has a lot of that!
Yes, he does. 🙂
stunning! a moment hangs frozen in space & time
Thank you, Penny. 🙂 Those northern views certainly evoke a sense of timelessness.
I think the fact that everything is, literally, frozen heightens that sense of timelessness – the world somehow hangs suspended
It does. The only other time I have felt such a sense of timelessness or suspension was in the Sahara Desert some years back.
Looks beautiful. Goodbye sun, goodbye winter.
Thank you very much. 🙂 Yes, the winter is starting to wane – so great!
