When It's Dark, I See the Lights! My biggest passion is the Northern Lights and Night Sky photography, the reason why many friends started calling me Aurora Dora. For many years the darkness of the Alaskan winter nights gave me winter blues, but...more

A must see when strolling Talkeetna. Very interesting with tons of helpful information regarding Northern Light viewing. We were fortunate to see them on our trip. Amazing experience. After viewing the photo exhibits, you will HAVE to see the Lights.

Since I didn't have any luck getting the aurora pictures myself, I went to this shop and found many beautiful pictures of the aurora that she had taken. I picked out two of them to have at my house in Georgia.

This studio is filled with beautiful compositions of Alaskan Northern Lights taken among various mixtures of landscape, vehicles, human, home and celestial. We spoke with Dora who clearly loves her art and knows every photograph and how it came to be. It was very hard...More

This woman has the most amazing art of auroras, but the shop is disappointing. Please put your art in books!
