Angela Brockelsby’s perfect vacation destination isn’t a tropical island or a chateau in France—as an amateur astrophotographer, Brockelsby dreams of traveling to remote parts of Iceland to photograph the aurora borealis. She captured these images of the night sky in La Palma, in the Canary Islands, under the tutelage of National Geographic photographer Babak Tafreshi. Brockelsby is Duke Engineering’s executive director of marketing and communications.
