Northern Lights, Brooks Range
The expansive Brooks Range in Alaska’s Arctic flows with a seemingly unending array of waterways that descend the slopes during the summer months. In the winter they freeze solid, covered with frequent layers of “overflow.” Overflow occurs when water from below the ice seeps up through cracks and rises above the surface of the ice layer. This is typically caused by the weight of a snow load pushing down on the ice. For an aurora photographer, it can provide a luminous surface to reflect the dancing aurora borealis above.
