A Head Full of Dreams

After what seemed like an interminably long "dry spell", we finally had some northern lights again last night!  There have been some good aurora forecasts this winter, but every time the aurora showed promise, our sky was socked in with clouds.  Until last night.  While last night's activity was not exactly mind blowing, it was very beautiful with a soft green arc along the northern horizon.  I went out to a location that I had in mind since last fall.  It turned out to be a great spot to photograph the lights.  I snowshoed out into this area that had been logged not long ago in order to frame the trees against the sky with the lights behind them.  I really like how this photo turned out and can't wait to go back during a more powerful storm!
