It has been awhile since I have shared some Northern Lights with you and last night was a specular night for viewing them. My oldest son woke me up at 1am to let me know they were active, he knows its okay to wake me for that! I run out with my camera in my pajamas, it was 15’c and very windy out but no bugs so a good night to be out. There are a few light clouds but the lights were so bright and active that didn’t matter.
They ran across the sky from east to west right over my house. Then for about one minute they went crazy and stared to ray out from right above me and it felt like they were falling around me! Here is a shot looking straight up! This picture doesn’t do the moment justice and this happening right across the sky. This convinced me I need to invest in a wide angle lens!
With it being so windy anytime I had birch trees in the shot they look blurry so I tried to avoid them, except for this picture!
I then turned the camera toward the house so I am facing west. I like this shot with the house lights on, you can see my son in the window but I knew I would get better pictures with the lights off so he did that for me.
Then they started to ray again and looks like they are falling from the sky!
I pointed my camera straight up again! Love this shot!
I then walked to the back of the house to get a picture of the lights over my Shack and got the Big Dipper in there too!
Then back to the lake, looking east to take on final shot of the lights over the lake.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
