Aurora Borealis
Posted By: Pauld, 08-06-2011, 09:25 AM

Last night I witnessed one of the most amazing displays of Northern Lights I have seen yet. I was outside for about 2 hours snapping pictures and fighting off mosquitoes. No matter how many times I see the lights I am still amazed every single time.

I've been there as well Heinrich. I've shot the lights during the winter in temps well over -40ºC. I've shot in weather so cold that my tripod was covered in frost and the back of my camera was icing up from my breath from looking through the view finder. I would rather fight the bugs anyday!
