Quite often when photographing northern lights, the surrounding features matter more in the making of an awesome image.These five shots from Churchill this season all have different facets that accentuate the photo. Typically, the more unique features that bring aurora borealis into the three dimensional world we know, the more enticing the photograph. Northern lights on their own are beautiful though it’s hard to measure up to an image with traditional northern icons.
