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! ;)

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.
