A cold but clear winter evening on the shores of Hudson Bay after brief snowfall and freezing conditions sets the stage for a natural phenomenon known as the Northern Lights. Dancing in front of a large inukshuk formation - the veils of light whip the dark sky then fill it to overflowing.

A curtain of green and red stretches across the night sky, flirting with the full moon which casts a bright beam of light on the surface waters of Hudson Bay.

One of the best times to travel to the town of Churchill on the shores of Hudson Bay in Manitoba, Canada is during October/November. During these months the chances of seeing Northern Lights streaming across the sky on a clear night are high, as are the chances of seeing Polar Bears congregating nearby while they await the build up of ice on Hudson Bay.

On this particular night we were extremely lucky, after seeing plenty of polar bears during the day, we were rewarded with this stunning display of northern lights while they danced in the light of a full moon.
