Giant Aurora – the season has begun.

After a day at the office, Sushi for lunch and an evening run on the treadmill, I settled down to catch an episode of Top Gear. Before I knew it, it was 1:00 am. I went quietly upstairs and as I was getting ready for bed I looked out the window. What did I see but a bright green band of Aurora. I got dressed again and I go grab some camera gear. I go to my usual places, Vee Lake Road and the Public Boat launch near Giant Mine. I go out Vee Lake Road first and start shooting. On my very first image a SUV drives into my scene. Figures. At least I get some light trails. I took a few shots and as I was driving between locations I saw the green sky above the Giant Mine head frame. I wanted to try a get a shot. Of course, from the place I could see the best there were power poles and power lines everywhere but, I shot anyway. Finally I go to the Boat launch and the bright green starts to fade. Again, figures. It is one of my favorite place to shoot the Aurora so, I take a few photos. So, it is now 2:00 am, I have work in the morning and I didn’t get any great magical photo that will sell in the millions. I got a drive by SUV, some power lines and power poles and a not so bright sky above Back Bay. I did have a great time though, the air was cool and fresh. It was peaceful and quiet and I got to watch some early season Aurora dance above me. Not a bad night at all and although the images weren’t the greatest, here are a few for you to see. I am sure that there will be many more to come, for me the Aurora season has just begun. It is now 2:53 am and I may need a sleep before the office calls so, thanks for checking in and as alway Happy Shooting.
