Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

The Northern Lights....not many get to see them but hundreds have.
Glenn and myself armed with the local info for a Meteorite Shower in the area
drove out to Stony Beach to paint this elevator and maybe catch the shower in the back ground sky.
Well the shower never really took off but the Northern Lights showed up in their place.
We were well entertained for over an hour, how cool was that. This image is right from the camera.
The elevator was painted just lightly with a 2 millon candle power spot light, from this position.
and we let the moon fill the rest. This elevator stands at a whopping 80 plus feet.

other sizes: small medium original auto

I saw the Northern lights in January 1985 whilst in the Fort McMurray area... It was awesome. Hope to get a chance again (with a camera :) ) soon. Well captured and presented. ~v~
