Northern Lights Surprise!

I was just on my way to bed when I received a call from my good friend Rob Peters. He was enjoying a spectacular show of majestic northern lights while sitting around a campfire in Winnipeg Beach and well ... he just had to tell me about it! So I went out for a drive around Dugald to have a look with my daughter. They were indeed very nice but sporadic as usual. The difficult thing about photographing northern lights is always trying to find interesting foreground. Not being in my usual 'favorite location', I had not pre-scouted the area so I had to work with whatever I could find in the dark of the night! It was also interesting to note that the fireflies were also busy emitting their own 'light'!

 

I made a few images and then drove back home after a lull in auroral activity. On my return, I noticed that the northern lights were even stronger in my own bakcyard in the City of Winnipeg so I made a few more images! Thanks Rob!
