Because the Brooks Range is so beautiful, I usually try to include some of the scenery in my aurora photos.  I think that helps set these images apart from ones captured in less scenic areas.  But, sometimes the aurora overhead is so amazing that I had to ignore the scenery.  This photo was captured looking straight up.  It is amazing how much this one was dancing in the sky!

Canon 5D Mark III, Rokinon 24 f/1.4 lens at f/1.4, for 1 a second exposure, iso 3200.

  1. Another fantastic shot, Ron! Did you use the same Rokinon 24 mm lens for your other Aurora images?

    Thanks!
    @Mark. I did. I also have the Rokinon 16, but mostly used the 24. Great little lens for the price. Has to be manual focused, but you have to manual focus night photography anyway.
