Photo of the Week for June 3, 2016

Solar activity may be on the wane, but fantastic northern lights displays still happen with regularity — and the farther north (and, to a lesser extent, east) you are, the more often your skies will bloom with an auroral display. Getting a good shot of the northern lights is one thing, but an interesting setting helps make a photo even more appealing.

This atmospheric image by Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, photographer Krista Trinder was captured on December 31, 2015, at an old cemetery in the ghost town of Smuts, Saskatchewan. Krista used a tripod-mounted Nikon D750 DLSR camera fitted with a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4 G ED VR lens for this 10-second exposure at f/4 and ISO 3200.
