Camping under the heavens
Camping in style under the colors of the northern lights and the stars. The campered truck belongs to Todd Salat. I had the oppritunity to shoot along side Todd Salat on my last aurora photo trip of the season.
Capturing a whole lot of light in this picture. STEVE, auroras, and light trails from a passing car. The moonlight to the right of this picture softly lighting the mountains and foreground.
Time to reflect
Another shot of Bird Creek from last nights auroras.

A low to mid level KP was predicted for last night in South central Alaska. Luckily it ended up being more torwads the mid level forecast. This was taken along the banks of Bird creek as the tide was coming in from the Turnagain Arm.
Bird Creek, AK
Bird creek, AK. I was luck to catch the reflection on the incoming tide.
Moon, Moon, Moon
Right now my daughter is really into Laurie Berkner band, My daughters favorite song from that band is Moon, Moon, Moon. Every time she sees this picture she starts to sing, "Moon, Moon, Moon.."
Light trail to Girdwood
Passing car heading to Girdwood, Alaska. Taken during our recent full moon
The auroras over Glacier View, Alaska
Edge of storm
Looking to the west towards the lights of Palmer and Anchorage. I was able to capture the edge of the storm while out in Glacier View, Alaska
Show from the bridge
The beginning of a pretty decent northern lights display along the Knik river.
Gazing at the stars
www.traylor-photography.com Gazing up at the stars throught the frame work of the Old Glenn bridge. All the while the northern lights are dancing in the sky behind me.

The beautiful view from the Old Glenn Highway bridge.
Last years lights
The northern lights that I captured this time last year.
Hole in the mountain
The view of Begich-Boggs visitor center. Located on the north shore of Portage lake. The light going through the mountain is the first of two tunnels on the way to the city of Whittier.
May the force be with you
The very bright and annoying headlight turned out to be a really good light saber. I had just seen the latest installment in the Star Wars series just this last weekend.
Glitter in the air
The light ice fog hanging in air over Portage lake gives this scene a dream like feel
Byron glacier road
The view from Byron glacier road was pretty spectacular. The Northern lights to the right and the milky way to the left. In the center are the tunnel lights and Portage lake visitor center lights. At the base of the milky way are Anchorage, Alaska city lights.
Reaching for the stars
A tall tree near Portage lake is reaching for the stars
