Winter at its best: Aurora
Last night coming home from a concert I saw people walking ahead of me looking up to the sky. I first thought they were looking at a comet or something. Then I looked for myself and changed my plan for the rest of the evening. I tried to think fast, where could I find a spot not too far from home with as little artificial light as possible, and with an open view to the sky.
There's an old road a few K's from home which goes between two fields. That's where I headed with my camera and tripod. It was FREEZING in the wind. I managed an hour in the cold but then had to leave to defrost my frozen fingers. These were the first really glowy Aurora this winter. I wish it had been Earth Hour and everyone had turned off their lights! Maybe another show next weekend?
