Fourth photo of Northern Light pictures series from Yellowknife.
This shot was taken along The Ingraham Trail.
For some people who don't know much about Yellowknife: Yellowknife is the capital of Canada's Northwest Territories, and the only city in the territory, with a population of over 19,000 as of 2004. Located on the north shore of Great Slave Lake on the west side of Yellowknife Bay near the outlet of the Yellowknife River, Yellowknife and its surrounding waterbodies were named after the copper knives used by the local Chipewyan and Dene who moved into the area in the early 1800s. The current population is ethnically mixed. Of the eight official languages of the Northwest Territories, five are spoken in significant numbers in Yellowknife: Chipewyan, Dogrib, South and North Slavey, English, and French.

Wow, what a cool shot. I love the colors, and the stars behind the light, and the forground for contrast.

Great shot David! It is so difficult to capture these lights. 30 seconds. Great exposure. Well done.

Another amazingly beautiful photo. I'm trying to figure out how yours are so much clearer than any I've seen before. I see the long exposure and the tripod, which I think is key; but still, I think your photos are better than any of the commercial varieties from folks who had been shooting the Northern Lights for 20-30 years. Any other tips? It's one of my goals to take pictures of these lights sometime.

wow! its always been one of my dreams to see an aurora borealis. this makes me want to see one even more...the northern light is real good, but i think that the snow on the foreground is exceptionnaly well captured. the colors are great, and it makes the contrast with the dark sky even better...
