The half moon lit up this landscape at Birds Hill Provincial Park as the northern lights danced throughout the sky. Besides the dominant green color, some reddish hues were also present. An AWESOME spectacle indeed!
The image was made with a wide angle lens set at f 5.6 on a tripod-mounted camera set (ISO 800) for a period of 23 secs.

Here is a second photograph I made of the northern lights early this morning. As is often the case, the display was not as exciting as promised - at least not at this latitude and not for the short time I was out!

What a night it was! It started off very slowly but it sure picked up steam as the evening wore on. Joe Kerr, owner of the new Pixels 2.1 Gallery in Winnipeg, joined me and we drove up to Matlock, on the western shore of Lake Winnipeg. A couple of days ago, we had received an email notice from http://spaceweather.com indicating that northern lights could be possible in the next couple of days. We hoped perhaps to frame the auroras with one of the iconic piers of the area.
