Happy #EarthDay! #GeorgeKourounis will be sharing some incredible photos from this season of #AngryPlanet all day long! "I took this picture at Nanuk Lodge, on the shore of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba. We had clear nights skies on only one night when the northern lights decided to come out and put on a display. The fence in the picture was there to secure the lodge from the numerous polar bears that patrol the coastline. At night, you’d probably never see one coming. One of my favourite things is to photograph the Aurora Borealis. I’ve seen great displays in Nunavut, Yukon, Manitoba, and Greenland."
