We live in a world where the most exciting thing we can see, usually, are neon club lights and skyscrapers. Because of the advancements of civilization, we often forget the raw beauty and power of nature.
People who have never heard of the aurora would probably gaze upon it and wonder, "How much equipment did they need for that?"
Truly stunning photo. I love the angle, and the lighting (of course) against the trees was excellent. Most importantly, I love how "back to earth" this made me feel, because lately I've been forgetting how pretty nature can be.
Continue doing what you're doing, it's stunning.
