Sitting on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake, Yellowknife is the capital of the Northwest territories in Canada. The town has traced a full circle–from going from a gold-mining town to becoming the centre of economic activity, and then a centre of government services, and again going back to becoming a diamond-mining town. While a lot has changed for the city, it’s ethereal beauty has always remained the same, which is why it attracts a great number of tourists. So, tourists as well as the locals keep capturing some great photographs of this place. Here, we have curated 15 such images of Yellowknife that will leave you spellbound! By Kumar Shree

Always a trip looking through a series of the aurora flaring up as it moves so fast that every frame is different. It’s cool to see it take on various shapes; in this case this one looked like antlers to me. Still a ton more to share and haven’t touched the timelapse files yet. I’ll save those for when I have a bit of free time to get em processed. Single shot: Nikon D750, Nikkor 14-24, f/2.8, 2 sec, ISO-6400 #yellowknife #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #enjoycanada #parkscanada #canadasworld #tourcanada #canadaparadise #paradisecanada #canada_photolovers #insidecanada #canada_true #northernlights #northernlightsphotos #auroraborealis #aurorahunting #night_shooterz #nightimages #universetoday #supreme_nightshots #fantastic_universe #night_excl #eclectic_shotz #earth_shotz #natgeospace #igkiller100 #eyeofthebangers #cwp002

I can’t believe I only shot 1 road photo on my aurora trip. I was too busy trying to catch all those good reflections. We were at a spot where there were lakes on both sides and in between running back and forth across the Ingraham trail, I stopped and just took one looking down it. The best aurora activity wasn’t happening in this direction but there was just enough to make this shot work. Fired off a few back to back to noise reduce stack the foreground with 1 exposure for the sky. Had my mom yelling at me the whole time I was standing here…sorry Mom. All exposures: Nikon D750, Nikkor 14-24, f/2.8, 10 sec, ISO-6400 #yellowknife #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #enjoycanada #parkscanada #canadasworld #tourcanada #canadaparadise #paradisecanada #canada_photolovers #insidecanada #canada_true #northernlights #northernlightsphotos #auroraborealis #aurorahunting #night_shooterz #nightimages #universetoday #supreme_nightshots #fantastic_universe #night_excl #eclectic_shotz #earth_shotz #natgeospace #nikonnofilter #allbeauty_addiction #cwp006 #nectarambassadors
