Nature has so many stunning tricks up her sleeve. Photographer Ian Harland came across one of those tricks, the Northern Lights, and captured this one of a kind scene on camera:
Harland took the image in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada when he was actively in search of Aurora Borealis. He then took a 15 second exposure of the first Northern Lights that he came across and ended up getting this beautiful image.
“After almost a week of trying, I saw what appeared to be a hazy green cloud in the distance. I set my camera to take a long exposure and after the 15 second shutter was over, the Northern Lights appeared in my cameras LCD.”
While Mother Nature has done her best in presenting a beautiful scene, Harland, too, put in some effort to capture the Northern Lights beautifully. Having shot the image from the middle of a frozen lake, Harland has made the best of the icy surface by keeping it in the foreground. And while the mountain is standing tall in the middle-ground, the arched Northern Lights with the view of the deep sky makes for a fantastic background.
