Heavens Come Alive

With the recent increased auroral activity here in the Canadian Rockies, I was tempted to revisit some shots taken last fall in the Northwest Territories. The NWT are one of the best places in the world to view the lights. Most nights one only has to drive for a few minutes to see the display, which often occurs directly overhead there (as opposed to above the northern horizon in the sea where I live).
This particular image was taken near Yellowknife. Daggers of light were raining on us for hours that night. Just as I thought the night could not get any more magical, auroras and stars combined to create what I like to think is a celestial fish.
I am looking forward to returning to the NWT next fall to photograph the lights again.
