Aurora borealis, moonlit Alaska tundra #8964


Aurora borealis, moonlit Alaska tundra, A March full moon illuminates the snow-covered tundra and sparse forest below a range of mountains in Denali National Park. Aurora photography requires patience and sleepless nights as the aurora can appear out of the silent, black arctic night but sometime only briefly. Alaska in March is still often very cold at night with biting winds. This display of northern lights only lasted for less than an hour long after midnight, a cold wind shaking the tripod. The swirling pattern appeared for a few brief seconds before expanding to a wide green arc, typical for auroras. This brilliant display overpowered the full moon’s powerful light.
