My Aurora Season has begun!

with 4 comments

I love this time of year here in the north. Crisp cool air, not cold enough to keep us inside and not hot enough to keep us out of the baking sun, very few or no mosquitos and dark enough that the Northern Lights can shine bright above our heads. We have only been back from vacation for a week and Dale and I have been out watching the Aurora and capturing some images. On thursday Mother Nature blessed us with a great light show. Dale was on the back deck in our swing, she was watching the bright green lights above the house. I was inside getting my camera gear ready. Within a couple of minutes we were both outside away from the lights of the city being amazed by the night sky. It is interesting how after 23 years in Yellowknife we still are in awe of the Aurora. While out we stopped at Fiddler’s Lake and the Giant Mine Boat Launch. It was a great night and we seemed to burn through an hour or so in just minutes. I am sure this is just the beginning of our late night viewings. For now here are a few images from this weeks show. Enjoy, thanks for being here and as always Happy Shooting.
