On October 7, 2015, my phone was buzzing with Aurora Borealis notifications so I packed my camera gear and headed to my local go-to spot. Unfortunately, not every shoot goes as planned and there was some kind of event that made it too crowded to set up my time-lapse. Back on the road for another half hour, I reached my next best location and immediately saw columns of light on the horizon. I don’t care how tired or stressed you are, witnessing the Northern Lights is always an amazing, refreshing experience. The show didn’t last very long but it was well worth the hunt.
