I spent more time watching in awe than I did photographing, but I managed to grab a couple shots.

It was one of those rare nights where, instead of sort of fading in and out, they were dancing around like ribbons faster than I could photograph them.

Damn, I just googled Yellowknife. You sure are North! I wonder what its like to live that far north and so remote from everything. I imagine you are there for some sort of work?

Oh, great shots!

That tree REALLY looks like it's on fire!


It doesn't matter how big your camera is, it's how you use it! :cool:

Not here for work, I live here! It's pretty northern, but doesn't feel all that remote. It's a city of 20,000, so it's big enough to feel like civilization.
