Quite a cold night last night as I snuck out to set the camera up to capture the Northern Lights. Although not the greatest display 64 degrees laditude provides a good chance to see them everynight. At 38 below the camera didnt last very long.

Cold, calm winds and clear skies combined let me snap these images of the northern lights in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Incredibly bright, with purple, pink, white and green colours. Sometimes they seemed to bounce and twist. Mind blowing fun!

It has been a really good aurora year so far. Even from a rather light-polluted area and with an almost full Moon shining bright, tonight`s aurora show was one of the most spectacular in a long time.

Not very bright or active, but we have had lots of clouds so this was one of the nicest displays this winter.

Photo details: Nikon D2H 8-24mm ISO 400, 30 Secs.
