A few days ago I captured the aurora borealis in St. Laurent, Manitoba. After posting one of the photos on a couple forums and Flickr, I was contacted by someone from the National Geographic Society. They were asking for permission to use the image in a photo feature on the increase of northern light activity these past few days. Initially I thought it was a joke/scam, but after a quick research of the guy's name I understood that it was legit. After a brief email exchange, they ended up using a different image from that photoshoot, shown below: The site: Daily Nature and Science News and Headlines | National Geographic News My photo: Pictures: Huge Solar Storm Triggers Unusual Auroras The other photo was picked up by the Winnipeg Sun, but nothing really can compare to being published by NatGeo. Thanks for taking a look!
