8 Breathtaking Views of Temagami's night sky

Known for old growth forests, pristine waterways, and some of the best paddling in the province of Ontario, Temagami's night sky views are awe-inspiring!

How many times have you looked up the night sky? Gazing up at its familiar constellations, glowing planets, the sometime-passerby such as a shooting star or a swiftly-moving satellite. If you're lucky, you might even catch the Northern Lights

While many of us live in cities where light pollution makes it a challenge to see all but the brightest of night sky objects, regions like Temagami in Northeastern Ontario offer visitors incomparable views of the night sky and all its wonders. 

Photographer @sdh_images knows this firsthand, which is why they decided to turn their lens upwards and try their hand at capturing those views. A researcher and self-proclaimed experimenter with a camera, @sdh_images has done a phenomenal job capturing some truly impressive views from docks around Temagami. With their permission, we've showcased some of our favourite captures below. 

If you're a fan of @sdh_images, head on over to their profile and give them a follow. For more images showcasing the beauty of Northeastern Ontario, you can follow us right here!

Satellite Flare? It's Busy Up There


When I'm up in Canada I take a lot of pictures of the same thing because you never know what's going on up in the sky and the conditions are always changing. This milky way shot at @ojibwayfamilylodge was taken before the moon set and since I had my ISO cranked to 8000, the front of the lodge and the dock were glowing in the remaining moonlight. Right in the middle of the sky I think I caught one of the iridium satellite flares. Really busy up there. #canada #keewaydin . . . #landscape #longexposure #canoe #canon #canon6d #astrophotography #milkyway #night #igers #igdaily #friendsoftemagami #travel #travelgram #photo #photooftoday #photooftheday #photography #instagood #instagram #instapic #instadaily #picoftheday #agameoftones #travelpics #ig_captures #toronto #thankyoucanada
