    While on an 11 day photo adventure in Upper Michigan I was able to see the Northern Lights several nights that I was there. This is a shot I took from Au Train Beach near Au Train, Michigan. Just a few miles west of Munising rests this beautiful beach along the shore of Lake Superior.

    July 12th was an incredible day. Hiking over 25 miles with 20lbs of camera gear, I got lost along the epic shoreline of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. To finish the evening with a stunning Northern Lights show made the day so incredible. A day that will live with me forever.

    When I got the notification that the lights were going to be out I had one place in mind. I grabbed my gear and notified some fellow trail friends I had met that day and made my way to the beach. As soon as I started to walk down the path to the beach I noticed the lights. Faint in the sky they glowed like a fog over the entire northern horizon. I set up my gear and began my exposure. The few people on the beach had no idea that the lights were even out until I shared with them the exposure I took on the back of my camera.

    Patiently I waited hoping the lights would intensify and come to life. I knew the potential was there. Moments later the lights went from a green fog to swooshing green streaks as red purplish pillars arced into the night sky pulsing and dancing from left to right. The color and brightness intensified and faded from left to right and throughout the entire length of the lights. The people that night with me on the beach had never seen the lights before. Amazed they couldn't believe their eyes. I remember my first time seeing the lights. It is such an incredible feeling that just moves you right to your soul. The goosebumps, the rush of excitement, that connection with nature and the universe around me, it's what I live for.
