One of the many benefits of living this far north is during the winter we are treated to the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights. The come out and dance for us on a regular basis and during the long winter months it becomes and addicting pursuit to try and capture a shot. I am still learning how to get these shots but my two best shots this winter are probably the ones below. The top one was taken from my front porch while I was getting ready for work. The one below I was actually able to capture some colors. These colors grace us when we have a strong storm. If you are in the Northern latitudes or will be visiting them check out this great website, Aurora Notify , it has a lot of great information and they have been a fantastic resource for me.
