As some may know, I do enjoy night photography, and in particular the chance to capture the Aurora Australis. Here’s some photos from last night out at Lake Ellesmere.
What a co-oincidence, that on Sunday, TV One, they had just finished a segment on Mark Gee and his amazing astrophotography work. Immediately after such great TV exposure, we had one of the best aurora displays I have seen in recent years. Yet the main display was short lived, only about 1/4 hr between 8.30-45pm. It was almost a perfect storm, with no wind, no cloud, warm (well 8deg!), no moon, a decent hour, with dancing beams visible to naked eye, at Lake Ellesmere. Simply stunning. Nature at its best, that you just can’t predict, but when it comes you jump with joy!
