2017—VOR-tex

Churchill, Manitoba, Canada at the edge of Hudson’s Bay, is home to a Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) system station.  VOR is a type of air navigation system that predates GPS.  It serves as an  aid for pilots without GPS services in this remote outpost.   One morning, we drove to the VOR and photographed it with gorgeous clouds in the background.  The swirl of the clouds reminded me of a vortex and the scene itself looks a little like a scene from outer space.
