Thank you all for your comments on my last post, it is good to know you are enjoying my photos of the Northern Lights. I really enjoy taking and sharing them with you! We had a repeat performance of the aurora last night so I was out again in my pajamas at 1am taking pictures. The lights were even more spectacular and and active with color and movement. This first picture above really captures the edge of the lights against the black of the nights sky! I thought it was a failure when I took it but once I put it on my computer and realized how clear the stars where and how sharp an edge it was. With long exposures the sky does not usually stay so dark.
There was a dominant red edge for a lot of the time which happens when they move fast.
I have taken this type of shot before with our boat in the bottom and the reflection of the lights in the calm water. But this time the lights are more vibrant!
The patch of clouds in the sky created a cool effect with this next image.
There were up to four different bands of light across the sky at its most active point.
Then they start to dance and go crazy!
These last few pictures are my favourite as I was able to capture a few bursts looking straight up. I saw this happen about four time but they happen so fast it is hard to get the camera set up to capture them.
