Aurora Borealis of many different shapes as seen in northern Alaska.
Jim, just wanted to post a note of appreciation of your work..... from far away France! I am looking at your Aurora pictures with some French friends..... they are AMAZED at how you can capture something so ethereal and wild as the Aurora Borealis!!! You have several new fans halfway around the world now! beautiful website!!!
I miss the Arctic and great people like you and Teena!
It's hard to believe what I've seen from your photos on WU. I have visited Alaska for 3 weeks during the summer months. It was so very beautiful. It must seem like you live in paradise to see and live your days there. I'm sure like all of us you must get away but always ready to go back home. I am new to photography and found WU by accident. I purchased a Nikon D40 and trying to learn as much as possible. I am retired USAF vet and thought I had seen alot. After viewing your work, I've seen very little. Thanks for sharing your eyes with us.
Hi Mary and John,
Glad you are enjoying the photos. In Arctic Alaska most aurora viewing takes place in the cold as it is to light at night to see the displays until late September, and by mid-March things come to an end for another season. Some times we luck out and have clear skies in late September or early October and can view the lights if there is a good magnetic storm at that time. But the norm for us is good viewing of the aurora means cold weather!
The photos you are taking are awesome especially the ones without the sky line in the background it seems to take away from the natural beauty of the pictures. I would love to see the Aurora Borealis
GOD CERTAINLY GAVE YOU AN AWSOME PALLETT TO CAPTURE HIS WONDEROUS BEAUTY! THE A.B. IS ON MY TOP PRIORITY TO SEE BEFORE I DIE! IS THERE A WARMER SEASON TO SEE THIS SUPERNATURAL LIGHTSHOW EITHER IN YOUR PART OF THE WORLD, OR IN THE OTHER STATES? I AM JEALOUS OF YOU!!!
