I was at Alaska’s Atigun Pass, where the Dalton Highway crosses the Continental Divide at mile marker 244 shooting the Northern Lights. The temperature was darn cold (-53C) Yes, it was -53C!

I still dont know how I survived a three hour wait to shoot the aurora. After the long wait, the aurora finally danced!

    Gasp! This makes me want to pull an “Into the Wild” just to be in Alaska, but I’d bring a few friends along to share in the experience.

    Amazing photo!!! So nice to get so many different colours 🙂 So used to the typical green colours. just amazing clarity and sharpness =) One of the best I’ve seen in a while congrats 😀 Bet it was well worth the wait though haha!

    Imagine seeing this without any idea of what causes it. ‘Awe’ for sure and then comes religion 🙂 Great catch and more than worth that wait.

    How can I use your photo, particularly the Symphony of Lights,
    to a project I am working on?
