"Take Me Away"

Yellowknife River, just outside Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

Although this time of year is fantastic for viewing the aurora - the light shows are plenty - my favourite time to photograph these breath-taking displays is in late August and early September.

The reflection of the aurora always adds to an image (opposed to photographing in winter, when the lakes and rivers are frozen), in my opinion...and not freezing your butt off is always an added bonus.
