I was delighted to learn that this Northern Lights at Chena Springs picture will be published this Sunday in the Sacramento Bee. The resort is about 60 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska, and within 100 miles of the Arctic Circle. I took this photo when it was about -20 outside in the occasional -60 mph wind gusts. I would set up my tripod, take one long exposure after a wind gust, then carry it inside the nearby laundry room! Yikes! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I can now check it off my bucket list.
