Spirits in the Sky: Northern Lights Photography by Paul Zizka

Editor’s note: As you can imagine, it is challenging to review books that are collections of beautiful photography, especially of nature and celestial phenomena. So rather than accept the proffered review copy, I instead asked permission from Rocky Mountain Books to use text from their press release as well as some photos to whet your appetite.


Spirits in the Sky is a beautiful collection of colourful images from the brilliant and inspiring night sky of the Northern Hemisphere

Few natural phenomena compare to the drama, surprise, and beauty of the northern lights. Witnessing their dance across the sky is a magical and unforgettable experience. Capturing the aurora borealis with a camera, though, takes careful planning and persistence, an understanding of the science, attention to the data and conditions, and a dose of luck.

For over a decade, landscape photographer Paul Zizka has been on a chase to capture the northern lights – one that has taken him right off his doorstep in Banff, Canada, throughout the Canadian Rockies, and to the far-flung corners of the Northern Hemisphere: the Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavik, Labrador, Iceland, and Greenland.

This spectacular collection compiles Zizka’s finest northern lights photographs and showcases the varied nature of this celestial display in an array of settings. From electric green to royal purple, streaking the sky over mountains or reflecting off iceberg-laden seas, Spirits in the Sky displays the aurora borealis like you’ve never seen it before.
