Entry Description

Seeing the aurora on this flight from Canada to Europe was a thrill. Creating a visually satisfying frame involved about 50 attempts and some embarrassing contortions as I jammed the camera and several pillows (to suppress cabin glare) up against the window. Eventually I got this frame which is (miraculously) free of glare or shake and in which the curves of the aurora echo the sweep of the wing. Amen ;-)
