Aurora Storm (the 'Northern Lights') as captured on Valentine's Day 2012 at Annie Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada.
Timelapse footage captured with Canon 5D Mark II (*2) with 14mm and 24mm lenses, Canon 1100D (aka Rebel T3) with 10-22mm lens and Canon 5D with 8mm Fisheye lens. Motion control with a custom controller by Fred Vanderhaven and a Vixen Polarie. Temperature around -20C (-5F) but thankfully not much wind.
This was only my second night out on location away from the house where I was staying with my hosts Andrea and Florian Lemphers, without whose generosity my Yukon Aurora Adventures would not have been possible.
Aside from the fisheye footage, which was running autonomously at 'home', all of these sequences were captured from Annie Lake Road, south of Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon, on the 14th February 2012. The Aurora was visible even before twilight had ended, and the storm was active for several hours and frequently held me spellbound with its brightness and fast movement.
Special thanks for the music to my talented friends Dean (sound production and editing) and Dayna Roberts (violin) for the soundtrack they created (Used with Permission).
