Photography and commentary from John Fujimagari

Aurora Highway


Aurora Highway

 

Saturday night rolls in and I’m just settling down with the computer. The first post I read is one from a buddy of mine that says head outside and look up, you can see the northern lights inside the City of Calgary! I’m thinking, can it be? So, I check the Space Weather Report and sure enough, a G3 event is underway. I race upstairs and roust Sherri, who’s just getting ready for bed and I pack up the camera gear to load the truck. We’re out in 5 minutes and on location in another 5. Our spot, next to the busiest highway in the province. This shot takes advantage of the location to add taillight highlights to the composition.

In the best light…
