Northern Lights at the Farm
Christian called at 4:56 this morning to let me know that he could see the Northern Lights during his drive in to work. I went out into the driveway and sure enough - there they were! I went back in the house to throw on some more clothes and grab the camera and tripod. Trudged through the wet grass to the north side of the garden and set up for a few shots. The sky looked mostly pale green with just a hint of pink. I set the camera lens to be open as long as it could, turned on the timer, then pressed the button. 20 seconds passed then an image showed up on the screen. I was shocked. I really didn't think it was going to work having never attempted a night shot before. The camera managed to intensify all the colors! Within 10 minutes the show was completely over. Glad it was a "good" phone call this morning and not another "I hit a deer" call.
