Northern lights pulse and sway over Lake McDonald, in Glacier National Park, just after midnight on April 23rd of 2012.
Northern lights dance across a moonless sky above the Prince of Wales Hotel, built in 1927 by the Great Northern Railroad, painting the waters of Waterton Lake in waves of crimson and green. A faint region of the Milky Way (top right corner) also makes an appearance.
Behind the lens.
The Great Northern Railroad - an American company - opened this grand hotel in 1927 hoping to attract Yanks across the border into Canada during prohibition years in the states. It was named for the young man who became King Edward VIII, but he never stayed here.
