I'll write more about this when I'm not so exhausted from tonight.. must've walked for 30kms to get these shots..this is a stream of aurora over the slave river. The cloudy stuff at the bottom is fog from the open river and the rapids of the drowned. The colors are au nauterlle, no boosting. Just noise removal (noise ninja) and USM to bring back the stars.

Look forward to reading your thoughts.

Oh, great. So these beautiful sights are a regular occurrence. You can just wander out any old night and see this. I'm not liking you any more. :)

Every night after 8 ;)

The thing is i'm not joking, I live in the second most prominent aurora weather area in the world next to finland

Locally I do formal protraits with people posing with the aurora in the background, with families and recently we intend to do a wedding portrait with the aurora.

Despite seeing them every night, they're always amazing and dazzling

Great shot!
The amazing Aurora Borealis is one of the very few things I miss about living in Fort McMurray, AB. (that and the ridiculously long summer daylight hours).

I was going to ask you if you ever get a bit blasé about seeing them, as it's such a regular occurence. But then I thought, "Well, no, every time I go out at night and it's clear and I gaze upwards, I could never tire of looking at the stars." Guess it's kind of the same for you, only a bit more special, as you're seeing things that very few other people ever get to see.

There's not much in this world that makes me want to leave England, except the odd Solar Eclipse and the Northern Lights. One day I'll see them both, but in the mean time I'll just keep admiring your images. (Don't suppose you could take a video of them for me could you! ;) )

I have never seen these in person, so I can never imagine what it must be like in person, but that is a great picture.
