They said there was a chance of aurora this night and the sky was clear, so we ventured out.
I have always enjoyed putting silhouettes into colourful skies.
I didn’t have to go far to find some interesting shapes.
The dim aurora is barely visible behind this old house.
Sometimes gate posts are all you need.
Sometimes there is just no way to get a silhouette shot and I have to settle for ugly street lights. Perhaps I will have to try during a power outage.
It wasn’t a complete waste, as the aurora did dance for a short while.
The timelapse video turned out better than I expected.
The milky way is just barely visible above the house, but I was pleased to get both the milky way and aurora in one shot.
A little glow gives it a mysteriously eerie halloween feel.
More gate posts! And I managed to catch a shooting star on its way to pierce the right post.
