Another unique location for a beautiful sunset is along the coast of Hudson Bay near the town of Churchill, Manitoba, Canada - nicknamed "polar bear capital of the world"!
It is not without risk to photograph in this location, where the icy grip of winter takes hold of the land and seascape, and where snow can hide a sleeping polar bear or obscure slippery boulders along the water's edge.
But this day's efforts were to be rewarded with a stunning sunset. The sun slipped below a veil of dark clouds and shone bright on the coast of Hudson Bay and the Hudson Plains, before reaching the horizon to disappear for another day.
Considered the largest bay in the world (if measured by shoreline) Hudson Bay is listed as part of the Arctic Ocean by the International Hydrographic Organization based in Monaco. During the winter months, Hudson Bay is mostly iced over with the coast being the first to begin freezing.

I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, aperture of f/16.0, exposure time of 4/10 sec. on ISO 50, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 24mm.
