Oklahoma Cloud Aurora

Bartlesville, OK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: While this was not a true Aurora Borealis, the light absorbed by the clouds on a long exposure provides a similar effect. A little after midnight it's 68 degrees F here in northeast Oklahoma. I think spring has arrived. I was amazed when I zoomed in with Photoshop and could almost recognize the photos hanging on the wall in the living room. On the right, you can see the weather vane in so many of my photos. For any interested, this is taken with a Nikon D800 in FX mode with a Tokina 11-16mm DX.

It is so nice that I mind you used a sky sensor or motors that are used in telescopes; there is no movement of stars recorded in your shot. would you mind please tell me what ISO and shutter speed you used?

A delightful picture, Mike, and a well-deserved congratulations.
THANK YOU THANK YOU for the technical tidbit.
Did you have to crop the image, since it's a DX lens on an FX sensor?
The D800 sounds amazing, but kudos to you for this great picture.

Way cool effect, indeed, Mike! What fun to see what it looks like in your unique part of the world. 68F sounds mighty warm to me as I look out at the freshly fallen snow in my yard......*smile*

About mbryan777


Hello. My name is Mike. I moved from a very large city in California to a small city in northeastern Oklahoma, USA. I am enjoying the slower lifestyle in Oklahoma and taking pictures of flowers, sunsets, sunrises, clouds, storms insects and hills. I have an engineering degree, but I minored in Biology so I really enjoy studying nature and how God engineered it. I've always loved photography but digital macro photography and weather photography are my favorites. Slowing down to study the small things, like flowers, has continually reminded me that God gives us many blessings that are simply for our pleasure and He is the designer of beauty.
