30 of the Most Spectacular Northern Lights Photos From Around Saskatchewan

The northern lights happen to be one of my favourite natural phenomenon. I’m quite lucky to be able to see them frequently in my home of Saskatchewan, Canada.

As an avid aurora hunter I like to go out with friends, sometimes until sunrise, just to watch them dance across the sky. I also happen to be part of the Saskatchewan Aurora Hunter’s Facebook page, a group of enthusiastic Saskatchewanians passionate about capturing beautiful northern lights photos. Reaching out to them, I asked if they would be willing to share their photos on my blog.

*A big thank you to everyone who submitted photos to be considered. There were dozens of submissions and it was difficult to narrow the selection to only 30!

Here are 30 of the best northern lights photos taken by talented photographers from all around Saskatchewan.

  1. What an incredible collection of Sadkatcgewan beauty!! Great to see my good friend Tracy Miller’s photo was one of your top Aurora picks!!

      1. I’ve never been to Canada, actually, but I do want to go. Sasketchawan shall then be in my itinerary for when I do. Thank you!

  2. These photos are so amazing! Thanks for sharing this, Ashlyn. This post is inspiring me to figure out how to shoot northern lights with my camera. I really want to learn and get beautiful shots like these!

    1. Thanks Brittany! It’s so much fun to go out and shoot – the trickiest parts are combating the mosquitoes in summer, the cold and snow in winter and the late nights when you have to work in the morning. But it’s all so worth it!
