Fantastic Phil!
Has a 3-D look to it as well with the stars behind the curtains. The reflection in the water is the icing on the cake!

Phil, this photo is about as close to perfection as I can imagine!
19 robinschooley (Robin Schooley)   (1/10/2002 9:25:59 AM)
Wow! Guess I'm just surprised how much DOF you have for such a wide aperature. Focused at infinity, I'm sure. This is a real beauty!
20 Hans (photography or politics?)   (1/10/2002 9:36:24 AM)
Stunning scene. "Good lighting". I don't like the cutting of the top light curve though. Maybe crop a little on top. Taste thing I guess.
21 gdanger (George Dangerfield)   (1/10/2002 9:53:57 AM)

Breath takeing; fantastic photograph.
24 Tracy Ferrero   (1/10/2002 10:35:35 AM)
I really like how the aurora seems to emerge from the mountain... almost like a volcano exploding. This is spectacular. 9 pts for the excellent photo, and an extra point for braving the cold elements in order to make the photo.
25 bmac   (1/10/2002 10:40:13 AM)
Beautiful shot, something you don't see everyday!
26 ChrisC (Christopher Cove)   (1/10/2002 10:46:06 AM)

33 Phil H   (1/10/2002 12:30:29 PM)
Thanks for all the appreciative comments. This is one of my all-time favourite aurora photos of the several thousand I have made.

35 BIGA (bighin vincenzo)   (1/10/2002 12:40:20 PM)
Super excellent
36 Gloria Hopkins   (1/10/2002 1:12:40 PM)
Well, I just commented and hit the submit button and my comment didn't show up. I hope my vote did :) because now I have a red ball. It is a breath-taking image. One of the finest nature shots I've had the pleasure of seeing. It is beyond critique, IMO. Way to go.
37 JMak (Jorge Mak)   (1/10/2002 1:14:48 PM)
Just a word: excellent!!!
38 Ben Horne   (1/10/2002 1:36:36 PM)
Wow!!!! Awesome shot! My jaw dropped when I saw the thumbnail of this on the homepage. This is a very well deserved POTD. The composition of the aurora is top notch. I love how it diagonally reaches out from the mountain, then swirls through the top of the photo and down the right side. The shape of the aurora really makes this a dynamic photo -- on of the best aurora images I've seen. Excellent work.
39 Darwin   (1/10/2002 2:13:21 PM)
I knew it would only be a matter of time when you got to the top... and I knew it would be with a Northern Lights image. You Aurora shots are the best I have ever seen. Congratulations on getting a score this image deserves! 9.75
40 Amuletum ( )   (1/10/2002 3:16:30 PM)
Yow, Phil. What a sight to behold. You've captured it beautifully. Thank you for sharing your most excellent image.

All asaid. Wonderful.
44 Derek Dobbie   (1/10/2002 5:35:56 PM)
No doubt about it, an awesome sight. It does have a feel of the unreal about it, but I reckon that is because most of us have never sen anything like this before. DD.
45 MJFerron   (1/10/2002 6:08:43 PM)
Everyday it seems there is a new #1 photo. All have been great and this is no exception. Congratulations. 9.5

55 VonBlashke   (1/12/2002 12:46:19 AM)
Northern lights? hmmm.... To me it looks like a volcano eruption. Well done.
56 Kimberly   (1/12/2002 1:42:18 AM)

Hi Phil, definitely one of your best auroras! Everytime I see one of your green auroras, I expect to see a genie appear somewhere..........

Absolutely fantastic picture! 10
70 Lagernet (Lyle Gellner)   (1/20/2002 5:44:45 PM)
Fantastic,,,second only perhaps two your "Tee Pees". I am always puzzled as well by the range in marks on a photo with such obvious qualities.
71 ICU   (1/23/2002 4:03:37 AM)
Congradulation on an excellent capture.
