Photo Details

  • Title: Ridge And Passage Lights
  • State/Province/Region (required): Alaska
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Juneau
  • Description: During the winter of 2012 a business partner and I spent many long and cold nights seeking out the aurora borealis. We are working on a documentary about night photography in Juneau. Unlike Fairbanks or further north in Alaska, Juneau is a very difficult place to view the northern lights. They simply don’t occur very often, and when they do we are usually getting snow or rain. Before I took this picture we were shivering in a fog of ice. Our lenses were iced over and visibility was minimal. We were about to crawl into our separate snow shelters when the fog suddenly cleared and the northern lights began to flex from above. What’s difficult about photographing the aurora is that they could last for seconds or hours, you never know, so its wildly chaotic and beautiful. During this night the moon was near full so all of the foreground was lit. Out of the 30,000 pictures that I took this winter, this one is my favorite.
  • Brief Directions: This photograph was taken on top of the mountains on Douglas Island. Douglas Island can be reached by a single bridge from Juneau, AK. Douglas Island is within the city limits of Juneau.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: Canon 5D MK2 w/24-105mm lens
