"And God made two great lights;

the greater light to rule the day,

and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also."

 Moonset Flare Aurora

A flaring light pillar flashes above the setting moon as an Aurora band lights the Alaskan night. Taken March 13 from the Denali Highway with a Kiev 60 medium format camera, Fuji Pro 800Z film, an 80mm lens at F2.8 and exposure time approx. 15 seconds. The image has not been altered in any way.

"and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night."

 Moon Pillar Aurora

A light pillar lingers from the setting moon as the Aurora lights the night. Taken March 13 from the Denali Highway with a Kiev 60 medium format camera, Fuji Pro 800Z film, an 80mm lens at F2.8 and exposure time approx. 15 seconds. The image has not been altered in any way.

Special thanks to Elza for helping me with these wonderful biblical references, and most of all…

    Oh wow Steve, have you publised any of pics? I was given a book by one of my husbands colleuges: IN THE SHADE OF THE TREE, a Photgraphic Odeyssey Throught the Muslim World, by Peter Sanders. And it\’s sighned by him. It\’s beautiful pics on the right page, and caotes from the quran on the other. Stunning book, but it sadens me because there is no glorification to my Lord. Your pictures with scripture in a book format is really something you should think about. God bless

    Awesome Picture\’s and so fitting that there was Green in them for St. Patrick\’s Day!

  6. Jim says:

    You see what so many of us forget to look at.  The other evening it was so clear here and I decided for a change to look up before jumping in my vehicle and going to the store Wow!!! So many stars and I just ignore them. Of course they are nothing compared to the Heavens you see, but you did get me to looking up. thanks Steve and have a wonderful Easter. Pat

  9. Life's Like A Beach says:

    Awesome Steve…never cease to amaze especially showing during this time following Palm Sunday & leading into Easter.  Will be taking a break away from Spaces for the Holy Week.  Look forward to visiting again after Easter.  May your Easter be beautiful.  Peace And Blessings, footprints

  10. Rhapsody says:

    Those are interesting colors, i don\’t think i ever quite got such a green and mauve hues before usually you see reds and pinks, yellows etc…..
    Oh…….thanks for visiting, i do rant sometimes, check out some of my older stuff, you see a few….lol…

  11. PEP says:

    Yes Steve he can paint but not all of us can capture his paintings like you. I know I can\’t.

  12. REDEEMER WORD says:

    Thank God he will be glorified in your pictures.  You should make an album.  There are many quotations in scriptures glorifying the heavens.  Picture visualizaion helps people understand scripture.   And scripture helps you understand what you are seeing.  When
    you go out on your trips God will go with you and show you great and mighty things…AND perhaps give more undrstanding of yourself and the displays…God Bless….ELZA

  14. Sherry says:

    Thanks Steve, it\’s nice to see all these beautiful images you captured from the North. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing. And Yes, God is amazing!

  15. Vieille Ourse says:

    Nature is so perfect … we should do all we can to prevent these magic things from being destroyed. Your pictures reflect that sense of beauty  ! Thanks so much Steve …
    Have a nice Easter  (and a nice time outside for more nice pictures ???).
    Hugs from Belgium.

  17. Cat says:

    drooling over yr breathtaking photos – yet  another downside of urban living is not being able to see the glory of stars at night except for the brightest – sigh

  18. Sherry says:

    He sure can paint and you sure can capture his art!

  19. Beth says:

    All beautiful!

  20. JaeElle says:

    You\’ve captured his paintings so perfectly!  Absolutely breath-taking!   I\’m thinking this can only be done in Alaska.  I\’ve never seen anything like it before. 

  21. Suki x says:
