Fairbanks Aurora, II

This is a shot of a beautiful aurora from the Steese Highway, in the mountains north of Fairbanks, Alaska.
A bit dark, but I only had a 30" exposure to work with!

Stunning and amazing every time they come out. Sometimes its too snowy or cloudy to see them, but they're usually there.

That is awesome!!! I live in BC, Canada and they are rare. I know the feeling of limitation with a camera!

beautiful. I don't have a good enough camera to capture the aurora.

Usually it's too cold for me to want to be outside to watch it :]

I love the sights here. I've lived in alaska all my life but I never get tired of the sights.

Too bad the people arent anything amazing.

wtf?! :D Looks so unreal and beautiful... Arrr, if I don't see aurora's in the next time, I'll get mad and drive extra to hammerfest (most northern city in norway) or somehow more to the north ^^

Great shot! I need to go aurora hunting once it warms up a bit. I haven't done any really this winter.

I'm in the Phoenix, AZ, area. I don't think we ever have the pleasure of seeing the aurora, but we make up for it by only seeing snow for 15 minutes every 10 years or so.
