Inuvik Sunrise festival, part 1: Staying warm for the fireworks

Fireworks were held at the golf course on Saturday night, with the temperature easily below -40c.  

Residents kept warm by burning about 80 palettes of wood, in a massive bonfire; however many decided to sit in their cars.

The heat was so intense that some people’s snowsuits showed signs of melting (the plastic parts) when they got too close!

  1. How did you do that fourth one? It’s awesome!

  2. That’s a slow shutter speed, while turning the zoom forwards. Sometimes that trick is used to show speed; it makes things “explode” in a motion blur type effect…

    thanks very much!
