When I was a boy growing up in Northern Alberta I remember winters being a mix of icy cold conditions, hockey - I was an avid fan (I used to buy and memorize every new edition of the annual record book) - and the occasional display of aurora borealis. I can remember my father running into the house excitedly, telling us to "chuck our parkas on over our pajamas and get outside, pronto!".

This image, which I photographed last February, symbolizes Canadian winters to me.
