It is a common knowledge that the strongest aurora borealis occurs near the Arctic Circle. This was one of the reasons that influenced my decision to explore Canadian Arctic. I wanted to see Northern Lights in their full majestic beauty. After all, what would be a better place for this purpose than Baffin Island? The Turner Glacier and Mt. Asgard showcased in the background of this photo are located about 40 km above the Arctic Circle and were immediate perfect candidates for my aurora shooting plan.
