Alaska aurora Taken in Alaska on the evening of 3-16-13 during one of the strongest aurora storms in years. I had already shot as far north as Dead horse at the end of the haul road in northern Alaska, working my way down the Brooks range then Fairbanks and then south to Broad pass and the Alaska range. So on this evening I decided to head south in hopes of shooting aurora over open water a real rarity in Alaska this time of year. My prayers were answered when this band made it's way over the mountain.
