I just returned from a tour to 'balmy' Alaska. There was sunshine every day and the noontime temperatures were in the seventies. Coming sount from Anchorage we saw the Northern Light putting on a brilliant show. The ship's photographer managed to photograph them in a darkend part of the ship in the crews quarters. She took the photos with a professional film, ASA 160, holding the shutter open for 45 seconds and just leaning against the bulkhead. The attached photo is what she took.
