Lee Sacrey Photography – Lee's Chatter

Mainly Photography but a little of everything at times

Vee Lake Aurora – Feb 18, 2011

with 2 comments


Last night I decided to brave the -42 degree windchill and go out to photograph the Aurora. I guess I watched the commercial that says “no self-respecting Canadian would say let’s wait for a warmer day”, lol. So, at about 10:30 pm, Kyla, Jenna and I went out to Vee Lake to be under The Great Northern Lights. Jenna napped for most of the trip and Kyla brought the new Hey Rosetta album (we had only purchased it 2 hours earlier) and spent her time just listening. Kyla did actually get out a few times to have a look but, it was really cold in the middle of the lake with no shelter. We actually drove most of the way out on Walsh Lake and back across Vee Lake, before stopping at the Giant Boat launch on our return trip home. It was a fun night and it is always nice to have the girls with me for company (even Jenna who usually sleeps). Here is a sample of what we saw. Thanks for being here and as always Happy Shooting.
