Capturing a high action activity like ice climbing can be tricky enough, but photographer Ray Demski took it one step further– to include the aurora borealis, and to do it in a single image (no compositing). In this behind the scenes video, see the challenges Ray faced when having to deal with capturing a long exposure of the scene, while dangling on the side of an ice cliff himself.
A great example of the dedication, skill, and luck that is needed to pull off some amazing images like these. There are more behind the scenes photos from the crew and from Ray himself, to view the full gallery, head over to the Red Bull Photography site.
