Star Trails and Aurora in a Snowy Landscape - signed 2013
When we ventured to the edge of the Arctic in hopes of photographing the aurora borealis, it was a once-in-a-lifetime trip selected for optimal opportunity to actually see the northern lights while we were there. We stayed at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, a nonprofit scientific research station that hosts scientists and laymen alike. The Centre's mission is to support both research and education in a wide variety of fields related to the North, from astronomy to polar bears.
At night as we slept in our cots, if an aurora started to flicker in the sky, staffers would race down the hallways banging on doors to rouse hopeful aurora hunters. This image was taken on our very first night. The aurora was faint, although the cameras could see more color than our naked eyes were able to detect. Each and every night we were treated to an aurora display, varying in colors from the rainbow shown here, to glowing orange, to the luminescent blue-greens most commonly associated with the phenomena. And each night the display was more vibrant than the night before- a great help in getting our cold weather photography technique up to par.
In the wee hours of the night, there is little color to be seen in the frozen landscape. The evergreen trees fade to black and the snow sparkles white under wheeling stars, creating a perfect monochromatic foil to the vibrant colors of the aurora.
