Photographer's Note

Fourth photo of Northern Light pictures series from Yellowknife.

This shot was taken along The Ingraham Trail.

For some people who don't know much about Yellowknife: Yellowknife is the capital of Canada's Northwest Territories, and the only city in the territory, with a population of over 19,000 as of 2004. Located on the north shore of Great Slave Lake on the west side of Yellowknife Bay near the outlet of the Yellowknife River, Yellowknife and its surrounding waterbodies were named after the copper knives used by the local Chipewyan and Dene who moved into the area in the early 1800s. The current population is ethnically mixed. Of the eight official languages of the Northwest Territories, five are spoken in significant numbers in Yellowknife: Chipewyan, Dogrib, South and North Slavey, English, and French.
