The northern lights were one of the topics of conversation at our neighbourhood Thanksgiving dinner. "Did you see them last night? About 2 a.m."
Well, actually no, I was sound asleep, and, I am not getting up tonight to check.
But coming home after an extended conversation, at 12:30 a.m., there they were, dancing in the sky. Shafts of cosmic light flashing through the sky, grouped around the Big Dipper and the Pole star.
Nope, too tired. Maybe tomorrow. But when I arrived home I had to change my mind.
Manfrotto tripod, ball head, D800, set to M, 15 sec exposure, wide open on a Nikkor 24mm f2.8. Six shots. Processed with Aperture 3 with only a little vibrancy added and here we are. And in bed by 1:15 a.m..
The D800 never ceases to amaze me with it's night photography capabilities.
