Chasing the Northern Lights

Over the past few days I've been up in Edmonton for the latest DeepStacks Poker tournament at Casino Yellowhead. Coming into this trip I didn't expect to leave the casino much on this trip but to my surprise we have been gifted with a few very clear nights, allowing us an opportunity to check out the Northern Lights. It's always been a bucket list thing for me to photograph them and see them in person, and aside from flying by them once last year, I've never been fortunate enough to see them. That all changed the past few nights.

The first night we just kind of decided last minute as the tournament was wrapping to drive north and see what we could find. No-one had a tripod, so we resorted to using our lens caps, cell phones, and camera bags to rig up some sort of stand for the cameras. We ran into a bit of fog and a lot of cars, so we all agreed to try again last night. Much more successful. Here is a look at some of my favorite images from an experience I will not forget!
