The Toronto Star celebrates the wonder and diversity of Canada by profiling one of Canada's best photographers, George Fischer. Besides providing one of his favourite photographs, of the Ram Plateau in the Nahanni, George also writes:

One was the aurora borealis shot in Fort Simpson in the Northwest Territories (in 2011). I never saw an aurora borealis in my life and I was told when I was up there — it was late September — that if I went out at midnight I’d see an amazing sight. Well, nothing happened at midnight and I was about ready to go back to the hotel when it began as a little sliver of green in the night sky and it just got bigger and bigger and it was framed by two float planes. That was amazing.
