Synopsis

Shot with ultra-high definition cameras, this book of amazing photographs showcases a period of unusually high solar activity in the Northern Lights. The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, put on remarkable shows of light and motion in high latitudes - Alaska being the perfect place to see them. These new photos take full advantage of the latest advances in photographic technology and especially active solar storms of the past several years that cause the lights. With 160 images that have never been collected in book form, we are witnessing the interaction of charged particles in the earth's atmosphere clash with electrons and protons released by the sun. Photographers Calvin Hall and Daryl Pederson are dedicated aurora borealis hunters, enduring frigid nights in remote locations to get the best shots. The results are amazing.

Calvin W. Hall is a professional photographer whose work has been published in a number of magazines including National Geographic Adventure, Outside, Discover, Ski, Esquire, and Alaska, and has been used by Rand McNally, Kelloggs, and Chevron. Daryk Pederson, an Anchorage-based nature and studio photographer, has been creating images of the northern lights for over thirty years. His aurora photographs are seen worldwide, and include cover shots for countless books and magazines, including National Geographic.
