Cosmic Ray by Thomas-Koidhis Cosmic Ray by Thomas-Koidhis
Somewhere northeast of Highway 5...good times! One of the coolest manifestations of aurora I have seen.

DD! Dang!! Thank you so much everyone! When I can, I will answer some common questions here, such as....

Is this a photograph?

YES it is a photograph. It hasn't really been touched from the .raw file...One curves adjustment after a minor color correction.

Where is this?

About 50 Km from Fort Resolution on Highway 6 in the Northwest Territories, Canada.

Edit - Now Available as Print! ;)

What a breath-taking view! Full of majesty and fantasy. Mother Nature really never fails to amaze us. How I wish I could see auroras in real life. :< This was really a nice shot. :D

I'm not surprised this one made it in the top two, amazing shot! :)
When I try to pick what two photos you made that I like the most I just end up cheating and pretend I can't count... :XD: Sky Burst is one of them for sure! :puppy-eyes:

So stunning! I just love the NWT. This is so impressive that you have done very little editing, one of the best Aurora shots I've seen

That's just fantastic. When I first looked it took my breath away. then I took a second look and you can sort of see a phoenix rising out of the trees in that shape. Nature blows me away every single day.
