AURORA BOREALIS (NORTHERN LIGHTS)








I have received, over the past year or two, some wonderful pictures of the 'Northern Lights'
. They are so beautiful. I have seen them a few times , but they are usually brighter further north. We lived in Edmonton and sometimes you could see them on a wintery day. These pictures were taken in either Yellowknife, or Whitehorse (interesting names) and they show them so well. Here are some of them.
I believe this was a festival. Some of these have been floating around the internet so you might have seen them.

I am in a small postcard swap in my learning group, and I think I will use them as a theme.

Isn't nature a wonderful thing?

I LOVE visiting your blog, it always makes me happy. The pictures of the northern lights are beautiful and would make wondrous landscape quilts. I will be watching to see what you do with them.

Shirley, those are wonderful pictures. Before I leave this earth forever (whenever it may be!) I would like to see the Northern Lights.
