Awe-Inspiring Northern Lights Photography From Across Saskatchewan 2022

Updated: Apr 6, 2022

The Allure of Northern Lights Photography

"If you can get beyond some of the dread, heading out on gravel roads or strolling down unbeaten pathways late at night in the middle of nowhere can be such a joy," says Dre Erwin of Pinehouse Lake, Saskatchewan. "Who can say no when the opportunity to watch 'Lady Aurora' make such a spectacular appearance presents itself?" It's never as scary when you have a companion!"

Spending the night doing northern light photography was common place, even when we had to work the next day

"There's nothing quite like being beneath an aurora storm, especially when it comes on so quickly," Erwin adds. "It can change from pitch dark to light as day in a matter of seconds - but they don't last long, so you have to be looking and ready at all times!" "

“Every night is different so don't be fooled to think seen one you seen them all" Erwin.

“It is amazing what you can see when you spend your nights looking at the stars! I've seen everything from angels; strange movements of light; meteors; STEVE; and images of my dog that passed away" - says Erwin

“I captured this spectacular display of the aurora borealis above Pinehouse Lake a few years ago while we sat back, ate popcorn and drank Tim Hortons. Seems pretty Canadian if you ask me!" - Erwin

Dre has a true passion for photography, but his night time photography is what really sets him apart from the rest. It takes a lot of patience, planning and instinct to have a successful aurora chase! Highly recommend this photographer as the qualities listed above, cannot be bought nor can they be faked

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That is what happened for me today as I viewed his once in a lifetime shot of an Aurora Borealis that spoke to me in an extremely meaningful way of a Butterfly and Angel. Delving into his long (and continuing) list of talents and accomplishments, I look forward to following Dre Erwin’s photography and life’s journey. It is a good day!

By putting cameras in the hands of these youth, a nurse literally is saving lives in the north.
