Alaskan Aurora

    Newer Older

    12 Mile Pass on the Steese Highway, just outside of Central, Alaska. The temperature at the time of this display was approximately -30 F. This was taken at 14mm on a full frame sensor. The tiny trees provide some sense of scale. This incredible aroura filled nearly the entire sky. LARGE ON BLACK

      The "Light Show" has been fairly tame in
      Alaska this year, so you are one lucky guy
      to catch this fantastic display!!! Amazing series!
