Photo description: A bright orb of a full moon illuminates satiny white snow blanketing the Kenai Mountains in Southcentral Alaska as multi- colored auroras make music above Portage Lake on November 7, 2017 at 3:33 am. I thoroughly enjoyed this show while listening to the classic Moody Blues song, Nights In White Satin.
Local photographer Todd Salat is known across Alaska for his photos of the aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, as well as breath-taking Alaska landscapes. His preferred medium, metal, allows for high definition and an almost 3-D effect. The inks are dye-infused onto a specially coated aluminum in a 400 degree heat press and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both waterproof and scratch resistant. These metal prints come in multiple sizes and some come in triptych or pentatych, which mean the photo stretches across either 3 or 5 pieces respectively. Additionally, all metal prints come ready to hang.
