Reflected

Submitted by: louis greene at Thu Sep 18 17:40:02 2003 UTC

Here is a photo taken 9-17 at around 1AM. Another good display, but not as frantic and colorful as the night before. It was slow and bright, and as always unique and beautiful. Knik river, Alaska. Minolta S404 Digital 400 ASA f3.0 12 sec

Alaskan Aurora

Submitted by: Louis at Wed Mar 2 06:57:01 2011 UTC



>From March 1st, in the wee hours (5am). After being out for a few hours and then finally falling asleep I woke up for some reason. I looked out the window and saw a pretty bright Aurora, maybe it was what woke me :). Anyway, pulled on some gear, grabbed the camera and stepped outside. Here is the sight that was before me. The Aurora was much more overhead and even South than I have seen it in a long, long time. Very nice.


Finally in Alaska, nice Aurora

Finally some good activity in Alaska. Seems like lately it's either cloudy or the activity drops off once darkness arrives here. I was envious of Norway!


Fairbanks Aurora

Submitted by: louis greene at Sun Jan 4 00:35:01 2009 UTC

One of the brightest Aurora's I've ever seen. There was strong arc visible as early as 8:30 pm so I knew it would a good night. When it took off the g round around me got so much brighter I actually looked behind me because I thought the moon had just created the mountains casting the light. I en ded up with a lot of overexposed images that night.    Copyright (C) Louis Greene and www.Greene-Art.com photography.=0A=0A=0A

It's warm here now in Anchorage, but a week or two ago it wasn't. We had about a solid wek of ice fog and Hoar Frost. It was spectacuar!

Until this warm spell, we had a week or two of beautiful cold weather with hoar frost all over everything. It was spectacular. The ice fog was frequent and it all came together for this photo of a sundog. For more Alaska, Northern Lights, and US photos check out my website at; www.greene-art.com

Taken in Anchorage Alaska. We have been having single digit weather for a while now and lots of ice fog. The trees are all covered in Hoar frost and today the fog was breaking and allowing the sun to do it's thing. This sundog was quite vivid and a beautiful sight.

9-12 Aurora

Crazy how it always seems to cloud up around here when there is good activity, sigh...... However, when we do see it, WoW!

Fog and Lights

Submitted by: louis greene at Mon Jan 31 00:52:01 2005 UTC

Taken a week or so ago. A bank of fog lays low in the valley as the Aurora makes itself seen. Canon 10D, 20mm F1.8

look, no clouds

Submitted by: louis greene at Thu Jan 20 07:02:01 2005 UTC

Finally a decent display at a reasonable hour with no clouds. A seemingly difficult combination to stumble upon this season in Anchorage Alaska. Canon 10D with 20mm F1.8 lens, 20 seconds at 200 ASA

Knik Aurora

Submitted by: louis greene at Wed Aug 25 06:36:01 2004 UTC

An image from last fall. I hope this one is good as well. Taken in Alaska with a Canon elan2 28mm f1.8 lens and Fuji Sensia +1 stop

Moon Setting

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue Jun 29 07:55:01 2004 UTC

This is NOT a double exposure. It was taken on a backpacking trip this weekend in Alaska. My friend is way far away on a rock and I am shooting with a lens equivalent to 440mm. Canon 10D, 200mm lens with a 1.4 tele


Old Glen Aurora

Submitted by: louis greene at Sun Jun 6 19:03:01 2004 UTC

This image was taken in the fall of 2002 during a pretty active display. I don't remember if it was a CME or just a solar wind, but it got really nice. Taken in Alaska with an Elan 2 and a 50mm 1.8 lens. Fuji Sensia 100 + 1stop


Specter of the Brocken

Submitted by: louis greene at Wed May 12 04:26:01 2004 UTC

Taken during an early AM hike on foggy day. Only one arm is visible in the image because the other one was holding the camera. The rays off the bottom right are infact just an ilusion from a shadow cast by a pine tree.

Moonrise from 5-3-04

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue May 4 19:10:02 2004 UTC

The full moon rising over the Chugach Mountains in Anchorage Alaska. Canon 10D with a 200mm lens which is really equal to a 300mm lens on this camera body

Mountain Lights

Submitted by: louis greene at Mon Feb 16 01:37:01 2004 UTC

This image was taken on Feb 11th (technically the 12th most likely) There was no moon so the foreground is dark despite the snow. The Lights got pretty good for a few spells but there was just enough of a really thin and high cloud layer to affect the cl arity. Yet, as always it was great to be out and see the action.




Moose under Northern Lights

Submitted by: louis greene at Wed Feb 11 02:59:01 2004 UTC

Here is a photo of a moose browsing under the Northern Lights. With ISO 400, a full moon, and an F1.8 lens, I managed a 2 sec exposure where the moose was relatively still. When the Lights really got active the moose was long gone. I passed her going bac k to the trailhead bedded down in the snow. Amazing creatures.




Aurora nights

Submitted by: louis greene at Wed Jan 28 16:45:02 2004 UTC

Another image from Saturday night (really Sunday morning) One of the more active displays that I have seen in a while. Seems like when things get good lately the clouds roll in, but not this time. Maybe the sub zero temps kept them away! Taken with a Ca non 10D at 200 ASA,13 sec at f 1.8



Double Arcs

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue Jan 27 02:08:03 2004 UTC

These two arcs were strong and visable for a long time on Saturday night. It got really wild a couple of hours later, and there was visable Aurora at least untill 4 AM when I called it quits.



Sun Pillar

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue Jan 20 20:56:01 2004 UTC

With all the cold weather we just had up here in Alaska there were lots of sun dogs, moon gogs, and sun pillars. The trees were all coated with hoar frost so it was a beautiful place to be, as long as you had a few good clothing layers on! Here is a sun pillar from last week.



Sundog

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue Jan 13 21:33:02 2004 UTC

The temps dropped yesterday and in rolled an ice fog. You could see the crystals floating and sparkling in the air. Sundogs were coming and going for about a half hour in town (Anchorage, Alaska). Here is a photo of one of them taken from my work place.



Aurora Panorama

Submitted by: louis greene at Fri Jan 9 20:05:02 2004 UTC

This image was taken ealier this week overlooking the Chugach Mountains with a portion of the Lights from Anchorage entering the photo on the lower left. This is a composite panorama that was made by merging 2 separate photos (taken seconds apart and ro tating the camera to a different view) together in Photoshop. The angle of view is probably around 160 degrees. Due to the static nature of the auroral arc, and a little “perspective correction” with Photoshop, it comes together to “represent” the scene that played out in front of me. Though she is blurred due to movement during the long exposure, check out the Moose in the lower right of the frame just above and left of my name!




Flattop lights

Submitted by: louis greene at Mon Jan 5 21:58:01 2004 UTC

A second picture taken the same night facing back toward the Chugach Mountains. 10D 4 seconds f1.8 400ASA



Anchorage Lights

Submitted by: louis greene at Mon Jan 5 20:42:01 2004 UTC

Friday night 1/2/04 as seen from the Flattop trailhead over looking the city of Anchorage Alaska. My first digital photos with the Canon 10D. F1.8, 200 ASA, 4 seconds.



9-16 Aurora

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue Sep 16 18:49:01 2003 UTC

This photo was taken near Eklutna Alaska last night at around 1AM. It was taken after most of the wild activity had calmed down. Taken with a Minolta S404 at wide open f stop, 400ASA, 12 seconds.

Winter Aurora

Submitted by: louis greene at Tue Jul 8 08:36:01 2003 UTC

This image was taken in March of 03' about 30 miles north of the town Talkeetna Alaska. It was a cold night around 0 F, but the show got good and was well worth being out there. Elan 2 with a sigma 28mm f1.8 lens with 100asa sensia pushed 1 stop.

Arc in Alaska

Submitted by: louis greene at Wed Apr 23 05:24:01 2003 UTC

This image was taken in March of this year. I have just started shooting the Aurora and had a lot of film piled up, but to the best of my recolection this shot was taken in anchorage from a local trailhead. Exposure was somewhere between 10-15 seconds on 100ASA film pushed 1 stop using a 28mm, F1.8 lens. Sadly tonight with activity on the rise it is cloudy here. Hope you all have clearer skies than I!
