‘Dancing Glory’ photograph by Ryan Ridge

‘Dancing Glory’ is my name for this amazing capture. On January 2, 2009 Ryan photographed a beautiful aurora near Homer, Alaska.


Dancing Glory

Dancing glory in the sky

Aurora undulates.


It dances.

Sparkles… shimmers

With delight of being.

As it touches all.

It whispers,

‘Remember… magnificence’.  

~Inspired by the photo above.


Several of Ryan’s photos of this display were featured in the January 2009 Aurora gallery at Space Weather.com. You can read about Ryan’s life in the big woods of Alaska on his blog or see more of his amazing photos at flickr.com.
