Thick, dark clouds hover over a frozen lake near the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba in Canada, but the bright glow from the sun at sunset manages to break through and illuminate the Arctic tundra. The trees and other vegetation growing on the tundra are unable to bend as the cold weather has set in allowing the lighting to sparkle off the ice covered lake.Winter in Churchill, Manitoba can bring out some of the prettiest sunsets, but the cold Arctic temperatures can make it unbearable to even stand outside at times. These threatening clouds can easily move in over the remaining light and blanket the Arctic tundra with another dumping of snow with the largest amount accumulating during November. The usual amount of snow to cover the tundra is around 16 inches, but the ice can become extremely thick throughout the winter.Sunset over a frozen lake on the tundra of Hudson Bay, Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.
