Run by IgorLaptev Run by IgorLaptev
The Inukshuk (pronounced IN-OOK-SHOOK) meaning "in the image of man", are magnificent lifelike figures of stone which were erected by the Inuit people and are unique to the Canadian Arctic. Standing along Canada's most northern shores, they endure as eternal symbols of leadership, encouraging the importance of friendship and reminding us of our dependence upon one another.

Whenever I concentrate on this deviation while I repeat the word "run" in my mind, I feel like sprinting across the soft sand that's underneath the shallow water into the sunset. I like the colors, so I will add this to my favorites. :).

In curious, where were you when you took this? I lived on Great Bear Lake, in the NWT for 3 or so years a while back.

Do you mean that the Inukshuk in your photo are always there? I mean is it stuck there or you put it over there and took the photo?

Awesome picture :D

Along the highway here going from my little town to the next city (Kingston, Ontario) Inuit's erected a small Inukshuk on the side of the highway along a rocky shelf. It's always a treat to see since I love Canada's culture and history :D

Anyway again, very nice picture. Everything has this soft touch to it, especially over the rocks

Fantastic. Probably the best is the appearance of the rocks in first plane. Congratulations. :hug:
