After living here in Alaska for over a year, I finally saw the northern lights. Friday night brought a nice display of the the northern lights, mostly in shades of green (thats the only color I saw as I was freezing my toes and fingers off waiting patiently for the perfect shot). If you click on this first photo - in the enlarged version you should be able to see the Big Dipper perfectly.
I'm a photographer in training, work as an RN, married over 20 years, 5 boys. Love the Lord. I'm a Texan, but lived in Alaska from summer 2005 to Nov 2007, and am now living in Colorado. You can find me on instagram: Yeshuaiscoming
