Tiny House in a Landscape

Steven Harrell from Tiny House Listings sent me to this photo for this week’s Tiny House in a Landscape. Cabin and Aurora Borealis is the title and what a majestic photograph of a tiny house.

I have only been able to see the Aurora Borealis once in my lifetime on a trip to Canada and it was not near this beautiful as we were in the souther part of the country. What I did see was still phenomenal and I’m sure for those of you have witnessed it like this it must be amazing.

Have a great weekend!

I’m sorry photo was copyrighted so I removed it.

Actually, it is rarely that vivid. It is an effect of prolonged exposure (or whatever it’s called, I’m not a photographer) of the picture to enhance the phenomenon.

    Actually it is that vivid at any moment in certain areas of northern Canada and Alaska. … It is not time time lapse .. As a bush -pilot for years up north since 1972 I can attest to more vivid ones if you care to ask …

I’ve seen it like that in real life but a still photo doesn’t do the phenomenon justice. Imagine it rippling in huge swathes across the sky and shading into more colours. Doesn’t do that all the time but sure is impressive when it does. I lived north of 60 for 25 years, you get a lot of opportunities to see the more spectacular episodes. There’s probably a lot of online videos that would show it. We used to swear that you could make the lights dance by whistling but Inuit legends say that would have disastrous personal consequences. Some people claim to have heard the lights make a crackling sound though I’ve never heard it myself, or maybe it was just lost in the crunchy sounds of walking on snow.

Check out the google site and click on images. I lived in Fairbanks and Anchorage off and on from 81-2001 and have seen them so bright it seems you could touch them.
And yes Alice, the sound of crunchy snow is the best part of living up there.
Love the shot…wish I lived in that very cabin.

When I was around 11, we lived in southern Michigan. I remember seeing the lights even then…and was mesmerized by them. I am 69 now, but remember how vivid they were and how they moved. It was pretty awesome…didn’t happen only 1 time that I remember though.

As I remember the timing of the siting of the ‘Northern Lights’ as we called them…it was just before the HUGE tornado that almost wiped out Flint…killing many people. A friend of my uncles visited our home, and he had just lost his whole family in it. Then right after that is when we saw the ‘Northern Lights. Sad, sad time!
