Displaced Energy, ice-covered Slave River, Northwest Territories, Canada

Photograph by Karl Johnston

I captured this scene when a friend and I went out on the ice-covered Slave River to photograph aurora. Upon setting up our gear on the frozen over river, he came to the realization that he had forgotten his battery at the house. I quickly crouched down on the snow behind him and photographed this double-shot panorama of him staring up at the swift moving orange clouds and flickering Aurora Borealis ribbon. He slung his tripod over one shoulder and watched the display flicker out within minutes.

      That was one of the word’s going through my head as well – the clouds were gone before the exposure could completely finish!
