Alaska aurora Taken on my first trip ever to shoot aurora in Alaska. This was from the amazing show on March 17 2013. I had already photographed north of the arctic circle on this trip shooting the Brooks range and Alaska range. So when this solar storm was forecast I decided to take a chance and head south toward a lithe open unfrozen water to see if I could capture the Aurora over water reflecting it. Everything worked out it was a great first trip to Alaska.
