The Northern Lights set a Glacier Aglow
A pair of ice climbers have been snapped in front of a stunning aurora. Mike Stuart and Takeshi Tani were climbing the Athabasca Glacier in Alberta, Canada, when the aurora lit up the nights sky. They were photographed by famed night-time photographer Paul Zizka, who specialises in photographing auroras in some of Canadas most beautiful parks.
Paul, 35, from Banff in Alberta, revealed the stillness of the climbers and movement of the lights made for one of the best photography experiences of his life. The Northern Lights can often be caught in Jasper National Park – where the glacier sits – with Paul usually snapping himself with auroras, making even the best selfie takers jealous. But on this occasion he shot Mike and Takeshi hanging from the frozen glacier.
