I woke up at 2 AM and could see that the Northern Lights were out in Anchorage. I got up, put my coat on, and started driving north.
My first stop was at Mirror Lake (pictured above and below), and I thought this was quite a show…until I got up to the Knik River!
My second stop was Edmonds Lake (pictured below), and I had a hard time getting my camera to focus here…so I moved on to the next place.
My final stop was at the Old Knik River Bridge. This is when the real show began, and I have never witnessed anything like this before in my life!
All the fun stopped when my tripod got a little too frozen and broke. Unfortunately, a camera is worthless without the tripod when you are trying to capture the Northern Lights. Thankfully my camera/lense is okay, and I was able to get a few pictures before the crisis. Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
