The F...

My Jeep died on the Alaska Highway at an intersection from hell.. and my heart broke and my anxiety was so bad...

Luckily, I was with Ri... my most wonderful pal and mechanic...

It was painful.

This was not a good day.

So, I did what any other sad, insecure Grrl needing a boost does...

I took a selfie!!!

This one is a little different... This one is beyond surreal... I am exceptionally pleased with this catch.


The LIGHTS were out in full force... 


So, practice, practice, practice.


...and dance...


...and remember... it's all ok. It can always be worse.

Great day!

What a great day...work was, meh...but it is hard to focus when it is warm and wind is breezing perfectly.

I went out this evening...to Charlie Lake.




That lovely couple sat for me for a second and I am very grateful. They were lovely people.

So weird..

Excellent evening..

Off to Jasper, Alberta for some well and overdue deserved time for me & the Mr.; Albeit, VERY spontaneous.

No Lights tonight... but, again, I sure love my home.

No sleep...

Don't get me wrong, I love Northern life....but sometimes, the eternal summer light gets hard to cope with.

My hubby can fall asleep the second his head hits the pillow... Lucky guy.

I am lucky I have my camera for these sleepless occasions.

I went out and about in the yard tonight. This was taken at at around 12:30 am.

I looks like daytime... it feels like daytime...

but it's not.




Northern Lights teased a bit...that was nice.

I love my home.

Late night with photog pals...

The Northern Lights were to be epic last night, so all the reports suggested. They were, for about 30 seconds... they were explosive!




I watched in awe and didn't even try to take a photo... They were incredible and then they were gone.

So, I took a few shots of Charlie Lake.

Just because...

Late and lazy night with my guy... chatting about nothing and everything...

Left him to watch cheesy movies and thought I would take a quick few catches...




Nothing special... but a very special night for me.

Life is good.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkk!!!!!!

Wonderful dinner party with friends...

the gorgeous Blonde... She is carrying my "niece"...

And I am beyond excited to be a part of this Princess' life...

She will join us in September!


Also...

Photos I took after everyone left. I was struggling the night before with getting my camera to focus.... It seemed to work fine for these shots.






I need the D810... I am ready...

Deep Sigh...

Weird

Rain...and I am not fucking around: MONSOON... for 2 days..

But this evening, work was tough so I thought I would check out the aurora forecast....

Spot on, as usual...




I was more drawn to taking weird pix of my home... 

Not sure..

I feel very domestic lately.


A commission piece I have been hired for has been a struggle...I feel stressed about it. I'm not sure my work is strong enough. I feel anxious. I thought I would feel differently about it..

I just need to focus. I just cannot seem to find it lately. 

Suddenly: FAMILY>>>Home>>>

They seem extremely important to me.

Weird.

Just random...mostly people I lurve much..

Life is so good... so much love... sooo much happy.



Eternal Light...

We are at the time o' year when the sun NEVER really sets. I guess I always try to convince myself it is something I am used to.

It isn't.

However, I made the best of it... The Northern Lights fought their way through a strong argument with the relentless unsetting sun...

I don't work tomorrow... so..

Fear of moose, bear and our neighbourhood Lynx was put aside..

I'll just leave these here.

*phew* Awesome.







Again, Grant... Thank you for the tripod. It was scary out there... but I felt better knowing I was standing should I need to run. 

Thank you for believing in me.

That's my guy..

Drone obsessed... I have to say, however... the images are amazing from his little bebop... And it seems to have allowed him some zen.

Never thought an intrusive, questionable privacy taking machine would be so fun!

Walk of muddy shame...

I got stuck. I got stuck so badly.. we had to bring in the calvalry...





I love my friends.. Ri, Joey.. xx

And, my Hubby... Who simply asked...

Are you ok, Eve?


Best night EVER!
