Yes, it has been a while since I put up anything here, so I'm going to reward the loyal hangers-on who check this blog occassionally still with some pretty pictures. Bandwidth limits here in Churchill are pretty tight, so these are rather poor representations of the high-resolution (and large file-size) pictures I took with my Nikon 5200.
This is the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, viewed a few nights ago, facing roughly North-West.
Here's the main lab inside the CNSC, looking from the back of the room towards the front. The doorway on the right at the end leads to the "Arctic Hallway", the kitchen, and the dorms.
My lab bench. Normally it's messier than that. This picture is from several days ago, during a brief non-super-busy period. With more people around, there are also more things cluttering nearby spaces, like chest waders and plankton nets. This is at the opposite end of the room compared to the above picture.
The boreal forest nearby, which is full of hungry biting flies (Simuliidae and Culicidae, primarily, with a good number of Tabanidae thrown in for fun).
A nearby tundra pond viewed at night, near where the first picture was taken. The trees in the background are all less than 4 meters tall, to provide some sense of scale. Most trees around here are not as tall as I am or only slightly taller.
