So many of the spruce trees around my house and throughout #Alaska have been killed by spruce bark beetles. It’s nice to find healthy trees before winter comes and the leaves fall, especially if they’re only silhouettes and the #aurora are out. 😉😉😁
i’ve done see it all! #auroraborealis nothing like seeing it with the naked eye—the lights dancing in the sky! it really takes a quality camera to get amazing photos of the northern lights. 💚 a great way to end my trip!
Pictures do no justice to the beauty of the Aurora! It was crazy, Eduardo and I were driving towards our Airbnb when all of a sudden we saw dancing lights in the sky! It was UNBELIEVABLE. The owner of our Airbnb had told us that the likelihood of seeing the Aurora Borealis was 10% and on a scale from 0 to 9, visibility was at a 2 so we didn’t really expect to see them tonight. Hope to see more tomorrow night, fingers crossed!✨#northernlights#auroraborealis
When the aurora dances above you it looks like a curtain. Imagine being a little kid and laying on the floor and looking up at the curtains and maybe there is a breeze so that sometimes your point of view is on one side of the curtain and sometimes it’s on the other side. Now imagine the curtains are made of light and 50 miles up in the air and moving back and forth quickly and vibrantly. I love seeing the aurora like this because it has the ability to make me feel like a kid again. We call this type of overhead aurora actively a “corona” which, being translated, means “crown”
I was hesitant to edit the white balance of this aurora shot so drastically... but it looks so cool in blue and I couldn’t resist! I’ve included the accurately white-balanced version for your reference/viewing pleasure. Let me know if you have a preference! #iceland 🇮🇸 #Iceland#skogafoss#skógafoss#aurora#auroraborealis
**there is no “picture” - this was the best any camera could do!**
this post was especially hard to select a picture, as none of the cameras I own could get it, but that right there is the Aurora Borealis, showing itself in a bright white light and dancing across the screen, visited the big man today, Santa, and he had his fingers crossed for me! It must be all that Christmas spirit I have, because it worked and I saw them! #auroraborealis#rovaniemi#norvajärvi
Alaska childhood magic ✨
Real talk though : in the stillness we’re able to create . Creativity does NOT Squeeze in to the busy overfilled schedule . My goal for 2018 has been to be still and my goodness is the fruit of that really showing lately . Only in the quiet when we shut out the noise can we hear from the creator and realign to what we’re supposed to be doing - not what others want from us but from Holy Spirit leading us to the beautiful place of purpose . Also - I’m considering offering this type of children/family art as a limited fall session combining two of my favorite things to capture here so stay tuned for details ✌🏼
До недавнего времени самым прекрасным зрелищем в моей жизни был вид из невысоко пролетающего самолета над альпийскими горами в густых утренних сумерках (перелет Вена - Инсбрук). А теперь я еще видела Северное сияние, друзья. Адекватных этому событию фоток нет и быть не может. Это зрелище из категории тех вещей, которые нужно увидеть своими глазами хотя бы раз.
