Ron Wassink ( firstname.lastname@example.org) up in Iqaluit put up a great post today. He finally was able, through tough conditions , hard work and cooperarative weather conditions, to get his photos of the Northern Lights. They are spectacular.
What is really 'cool' is that Ron put together a list of steps to taking a good photo of the Aurora . If you want to take such a shot then Ron's post is essential . There is nothing like experience as a teacher.
