Second photo of Northern Light pictures series from Yellowknife.
For yellowknife, norhtern light is an experience that comes at least few times per week. The reason that Yellowknife gets a high number of northern light sightings is because of its situation under an Aurora oval; there are two aurora ovals, one over each pole.
Any comments welcome!

Awesome shot David!
I've never seen the Northern Lights in person, but looking at this shot- I'd be tempted to fly up (my next time in Canada) just to have a night of taking photos of them...
Great job exposing the snow/ trees...

Especially vivid colour of northern light is really beautiful.
Did you use something noise removal software?
Very smooth finishing!

David, what a pleasure to see Northern lights photo again. It is definitely one of my favourite things in life - to see those great lights dancing all over sky. I'm surprised there are still some time to time now as I am regularly checking solar activity and it is on its record low. Well managed composition too. Well done. L.
nbj (2095) 2006-02-15 3:59
Wow. I only saw Northern light twice in my life, in Denmark, and that was two spectacular experiences. Must be great to be at a place where it occurs every week. A really beautiful shot of a beautiful phenomenon. Thank you for sharing it.
dolin (15647) 2006-02-15 5:18

Congratulations for the good shot. The proper exposure time and the good composition have made the image fantastic! Except the foreground and the Aurora I also like the stars that could be seen in the sky.

WOW - great work!
Brendon (289) 2006-06-18 6:57
Excellent picture of the Northern Lights. I have only seen them once myself when I was young (so the appreciation was low), but you have demonstrated what a wonderful vision it is to behold. I lived in Nanisivik, NU for two years but unfortunatley/apparently was too far north to witness them. Your a lucky photographer to have the many chances you get to capture and share this sight with others.
Thanks for showing a wonderful picture.
gramma (3519) 2006-08-12 8:47
Fantastic these colors ! Thank you for sharing this series of photographs.
Matthew-Watt (5956) 2006-08-15 3:02
I am most interested in these strange light shows, and seeming I am the 1000th viewer of this image, I must tell you what I think. This shot is 100% beauty, the ice and snow are so crisp and add a most interesting FG. The pine trees are an excellent marker of depth and height, and the sky has a most awsome toen of blue to it. As for the Aurora, well, I think there must be few greater sights in the world than this. Your nost was also most interesting, I was never told about the polar ovals before. Good job.
zahide (132) 2006-09-10 14:18

flosoup (563) 2006-11-09 17:51
I love photos of the Aurora but this is simply outstanding, very clear and crisp and the snow lends itself perfectly to this effect.
USErin (189) 2006-11-10 22:49
I am dying to see the Northern Lights. I am so glad to hear that you can see them as far south as Canada. Thanks for sharing.
