Tim, If you find yourself getting pillars in the future, double the iso and halve the shutter time. Those pillars move around quite a bit, and the more definition you can get in them, the higher the impact.

Great result though.

Very unusual to see a display without green colors. The pink/purple color comes from nitrogen excitation in the thermosphere (green is caused by excitation of oxygen). Very cool. Even if it wasn't a great shot (which it is), it would be a keeper for the rarity of the colors.

This photo really wants to make me capture this scene with the addition of snow. Great shot!

Not sure about that, as the pinks/purples tend to be fairly common in the mid-latitudes, in comparison. In Iceland or similar, yes, they typically get green, as the aurora is generally occurring overhead, and pink would be relatively uncommon. Here in CO, it is almost always pink, as the green is 'beneath', and occurring too far north (too low in the atmosphere) to be visible. Finally got some green two nights ago, it was fun to see it all occur nearly overhead, with pillars going nearly all the way to zenith.

Incredible! This is why I come back to this site - for this kind of inspiration. You sure picked the right spot and executed perfectly.

Excellent photo that proves being in the right spot when the right light hits is 90% of the battle. You couldn't lose

I lived in Oregon for a period of time and never made it here.

Yes!

Got some keeper images for sure from Mt. Shasta!

I'll share soon, but you can see them now on my website under the night gallery. hallamphoto.com

We visited Crater Lake late last week. Still a lot of snow up on top but what a place!
