Hangin with the Caribou - New Book, Music CD and Multimedia DVD

Front and back covers of Hangin with the Caribou book
"Hangin with the Caribou" is my first photography book that I hope will serve as a prototype of what I plan to do in the future where I will include more information about the science of the aurora and techniques to photograph her along with the biology of caribou. This photo-book is based on six trips to Yellowknife and also 350 km further north to Point Lake on the tundra where I stayed at Peterson's Point Lake Lodge. Between September 3-10 for the past 6 years I lead a workshop in partnership with Peterson's lodge to photograph the autumn landscape, migrating caribou and other wildlife. On clear evenings I would photograph the Aurora borealis also referred to as the northern lights. The tundra can be considered the "Serengeti of the North" as hundreds of thousands of barren land caribou migrate south to the boreal forest in autumn. Many of the photographs have also been taken enroute to and around Yellowknife. Yellowknife is easily accessible by air and car. The book is unique in that it includes a companion Music CD by my wife Donna with 11 tracks inspired by the caribou, aurora and other wildlife.
For more informaiton about our yearly Arctic Adventures visit Peterson's Point Lake lodge web site. If you can't visit you can still enjoy these photographs of the northern lights, barren land caribou and other wildlife.

Goddess of the Dawn
Usher in the sun every morning
Of the sun and moon,
Mother of the winds you are immortal
But you have a mortal lover
Is that you looking for your lover?
I wonder if you’re dancing for your lover?
The sky is on Fire tonight
The dance of the spirits ignite
And paint the sky like a masterpiece
I wonder just what it could mean
A palette of scarlet and green
Moving to music we cannot hear
A rhapsody not meant for our ears
The sky is on fire tonight
Native of this land
Missing his father’s guiding hand
He lives on
In the sky above
Like everyone you loved who left before you
His mother tells him as she dries his eyes
In the sky you can see him dancing
Look on high and you can see the spirits dancing
Each generation after another
We never cease to wonder
Just what it could mean
Always gazed upon with awe
y those who sought her out and saw
The beautiful Aurora
High in the sky like a queen
A father a long time ago
Grieves for his son who died in battleL
looks up to see the shield of the Valkyries
And he knew his son would be in paradise
after all did he not pay the price?
For a moment he could see his son dancing
He could see his son was smiling and dancing
