Inspired by S3rzz's contribution to the "If You Could Only Have One" thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=23924

I work in remote Northern Ontario in Canada and spend a lot of time flying on little "bush planes" as they are called. In the winter darkness, the clouds, or over many kilometres of monotonous terrain I'm happy to solve my puzzles and listen to music. When there is a view, I get out my camera:

Do you have a unique or interesting commute to work?

It takes me 10 minutes to get to work. The most exiting thing that happens on the way is whether I buy my newspaper at the first or second shop I pass :(

That's just beautiful Pete, such remote wilderness, what do you do for a crust? Cold though. My commute would be ordinary if I didn't ride a motorbike, I just enjoy riding so it's a bit less mundane that way.

The commute to work is a 20 minute drive in the late afternoon. Not usually very interesting. But the commute home is in the early morning before sunrise, so the commute involves watching for deer, possums, racoons, skunks, foxes, and coyotes that may be on the road. I always see deer. The others rarely but sometimes.

My commute is a 20 min drive on the autoroute around lake Geneva, here with Mont Blanc in the background. :D

I work from home - so my commute consists of a walk downstairs... :)

Unbelievably cold most of the year. I'm a math teacher and I travel around to remote First Nations (Aboriginal) communities to help teachers with their math programs. If they want me to teach a few lessons, I'm always happy to oblige.

That is a beautiful view! I'd find it difficult to concentrate on the drive!
