A spectacular corona over King Mountain in Alaska photographed on frozen Matanuska river. This was one of the greatest nights of the northern lights I can remember. Usually you have to photograph north to catch the light from the aurora but this show was so strong I was shooting south.
This is the one and only real UFO encounter I've ever had. As I was photographing and doing a time-lapse of this scene in the middle of a very cold winter night with no one around, an object appeared over the mountains. I watched it hover still in the same place for two minutes as I kept taking pictures with 30 second shutter speeds. I caught four similar photos to this before it slowly flew away the opposite direction. It definitely didn't seem like a plane or a helicopter to me. There was also no sound to be heard which I should have heard had it been there.
A massive northen lights display overhead, also known as corona, shows itself in many colors. It is not too often you see the reds, purples, and pinks but this show was one of the best ones I've ever seen.
An awesome display of the aurora with the more rare color red and the many details of milkyway illuminate above an old gold mine in Alaska. It was an insanely cold night that night. I was wearing several layers and I just couldn't stay warm no matter how I tried.
