Final Spectacle
Photograph by Michael Melford

Darkness had only just settled over Jordan Pond when the northern lights swirled above photographer Michael Melford. "It was my last night in Acadia and I was setting up for a long exposure of starlight in the night sky," he recalls, "and this brilliant red aurora appeared. I was in a panic to make sure I caught it."
