More Northern Lights!


Hope you will indulge me as I share more Northern Lights photos with you as they were very active last night.   I also wanted to test my new wide angle lens on the aurora and I am very impressed with the improvement of clarity and amount of sky captured!   Now if only that damn street light ( the only one in our neighbourhood) would burn out!  I hate that light with a passion as it creates a red glow on the trees and my house!  So lets just pretend you don’t see it, okay!


I wanted to get away from that light so my husband drove me to a local beach that faces north and I was able to take capture the aurora on a larger scale.

This next on is kind of spooky!  Looks like a hand reaching down…


I then turned my attention west and this was tricky as the highway is right there and when cars passed I had to wait to take the next picture.


The Big Dipper!


Then I caught a burst right above me!    To get an idea of how fast they move each picture is exposed for 10-15 seconds.


I just peeked outside….the aurora is starting up again so no sleep for me tonight!
