Thank you all for your great comments! Unfortunately it may take a while to get enough good aurora shots to make a calendar. I already missed the two best opportunities and can only hope for a couple more before the winter is over. I only have probably two more photos that are worth showing right now. #258019

Karen Seargeant 11/6/2003 7:48:51 PM

What a cool shot, Gary! I can see I have missed alot of your work and will have to browse your gallery to catch up! #259133

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 11/6/2003 9:13:14 PM

Thank you, Karen! If you've been away for awhile you've probably missed a lot of my photos because I enter one pretty much every day :-) #259209

Arthur Rosch 11/7/2003 10:57:43 AM

Gary, if you go to my Landscapes gallery, you will notice that I have
pointed you out as a master of the landscape photograph in my blurb.
You really know how to utilize your
marvelous surroundings. This one's
a kicker!

Maybe one of my favorite from the aurora serie, if is possible to chose!!? This is incredible, I have never seen this kind of phenomene, it is terrific!
And this photo says it all. Regards, Su #265419

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 11/13/2003 1:02:40 AM

Art; I am most sincerely honored to receive such a favorable review from the true king of night photography! I also visited your gallery again (it's been awhile) and am very flattered by your generous reference. More importantly I had an opportunity to gaze at some gorgeous astro photography that I had not seen before. Truly awesome and inspiring images!

Susana; I'm glad you have enjoyed my Alaskan light shows! It is so sad that there are so many people in the world that have not had the opportunity to witness the aurora borealis in person. It is definitely one of the true wonders of the world. #265818

Carol Engstrom level-deluxe 11/23/2003 8:06:27 PM

Wow Gary! This is amazing. I hope I can see something like this someday. Meanwhile thanks for sharing the view from your part of the world. #278767

Shot just down the road from my home. The aurora were so pervasive that the whole sky was green, plus there was a little light from the moon combining with it to light up the mountains in green. There are a lot of stars in this photo but Orion stands out quite clearly.
