The fabulous photograph of the northern lights over Turnagain Arm and the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center was taken by the Aurora Hunter, Todd Salat. This is a double matted open edition 5×7 photo print in an 8×10 mat that comes hand signed. Watermark will not be on the photo you receive.
Todd recounts his experience the night he captured this image:
“On the morning of March 12, 2012, I was 50 miles southeast of Anchorage along the Seward Highway, standing on the frozen tip of one of Alaska’s coveted fjords, the Turnagain Arm, when the sky turned to brilliance. It was 3:45 am and a late rising moon climbed over the Kenai Mountains, casting a welcome glow into the valley as an enormous aurora curtain migrated into the southeast. The earth’s magnetic field lines were revealed as electrons spiraled in a downpour of energy and left painted trails of red and green light in their wake. The lights of Portage Junction twinkled in the distance as the moon beamed, snow crunched and the curtain shimmered. It was a full sensory impact.”
