northern lights over fox lake

northern lights over fox lake minnesota


  1. my first try at northern lights. i was out driving tonight because odin no longer goes to sleep unless it's after midnight and he's in his car seat. this habit better not transfer back to uganda. anyway, there were some folks on the side of the road which initially caused me some concern because it was the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night. they were all looking up at the sky, though, and sure enough, aurora borealis.

    once the boy was taken care of, i headed down to the dock with the wide angle. ISO 250, f/2.8, 30" exposure. easy. set the camera on the dock propped on my croc. i first tried ISO 400, but they were a little light and i dropped the ISO to get better noise.
