Northern Latitudes for the Aurora Borealis
Seeing the aurora borealis – typically at its best in winter – requires travel for most of us, and we have our choice of cold-climate viewing spots, from Norway to northern Wisconsin. I have good friends in both spots, and envy their having seen the phenomenon also called “the northern lights.” Pictured here is a shot from Alaska’s Bear Lake area: wow! When I finally get to see this sight, I’ll have to watch where I’m walking, as the sky will definitely be a distraction!
What photographer doesn’t long to visit beautiful Havana, where 1950s Chevys cruise past faded elegant buildings as if time has both passed but stopped. Scintillating Afro-Cuban music wafts across the city each evening, and visitors don’t have to look far to find a street scene which brings a smile.
Havana’s architectural beauty can be traced back to its development in the 17th century: Spaniards drew upon a variety of styles from Iberia and the Canary Islands.
