Hope this makes it into the "best of 2010" series. Would be more than well deserved. Thank you for freezing your toes and fingers off to bring the rest of the world the wonders of the Aurora Borealis.

Camera, lens, settings? This is one of the most outstanding Northern Lights pics I have seen. Outstanding!

BTW, have you posted this pic at a site where one can purchase a print. It is really that good. I would like an 8x10 or maybe bigger.

Un-freaking-believable! Love it!! something I have always wanted to see is the Aurora.. not where I am though, just south of Ohio river in KY.

My guess that all the solar/magnetic activity on the sun is really ramping up the northern lights?? not sure.. it is just stunning. great job!
