The Aurora was spectacular last weekend! I took a ton of shots at Elk Island National Park outside Edmonton. However, I feel they could benefit from a bit of foreground interest. Coincidentally, I also have a shot of the Three Sisters mountain range in Canmore with an empty sky. In the past, I played with sky swaps in Photoshop more to see if I could do it than because a shot really "needed" it.

It also felt a bit weird to swap the sky that I shot with a "generic" one from Adobe. Since I took both the mountains and the Aurora shots, it feels a lot better. Let me know what you think.
