Mother Nature's frosting: It might not be made of sugar but morning frost in the Arctic can look just as sweet. This shot comes to us from Nunavut's southernmost community of Sanikiluaq, population 880, on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay, about 150 kms from the Quebec coastline.  The mostly Inuit community, which lies below the 60th parallel, is starting to enjoy long days of sunlight, with a 7:10 a.m. sunrise and a 5:50 p.m. sunset. Compare that with Nunavut's northernmost community of Grise Fiord whose days are also growing, with eight hours of daylight currently, between 8:45 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. (PHOTO BY SARAH MEEKO)
