Absolutely beautiful. : )
It is my dream to one day see the aurora borealis with my own eyes.
In the meantime, I sure appreciate this fantastic image that shows the amazing lights against the silhouetted trees.

it is very intresting foto and very nice color
I have heard of the aurora, but here 'down under' in New Zealand I have neve seen one. Is this coloour natural? I would love to see one.
Great shot, especially with the tree silhouettes showing. TFS

If camping it's a full contact with Nature, with this aurora over your head it must be a sublime experience. You have remembered me Northern exposure. I find this shot so beautiful that seems almost unreal.
Thank for sharing,

Congratulations for this beautiful and rare capture. This year, is the first one that I haven't see one...

That is an amazing shot! Very cool... ;-} The silhouettes of the trees are just enough to give it a nice composition and sense of depth.
Very nice camera work!

My God, this looks so familiar to you, and I have never seen it in my life! It really is a dream of mine to capture a phenomenon like this. Good work. You made me jealous!!!

This is till on my list of the see before I die. I love the swirl in the aurora you've captured. Great idea to include the trees in the shot it gives it a kind of scale.

Out of this world, David. You did an excellent job composing this with the trees in the bg and the aurora behind. This would be a graet composition had you been working in light, but that seems pretty hard in the dark. So well done Great job on the exposure, too.
I see these a couple time a year, usually from my backyard hot tub. Last year I was so eager to catch one with my new camera, but didn't see one all winter. Thanks for the additional inspiration!

Excellent Aurora photo.
I love the Green color,your pov,dof,sky details,stars,silhouettes,exposure,framing and composition.Well Done.TFS
Wow. That is really amazing. I lived in Alaska for a year and never really saw an aurora. I guess a long exposure intensifies the color a bit. This is a nicely executed shot. Thanks for sharing it.
