I love it! I look at a lot of these types of photos and don't often see the red color like that. Very cool. I work at night and have a standing offer to any of my people. I will buy them a steak dinner if they spot an aurora before I do!

Beautiful Katy. I have never had the pleasure of seeing an aurora but hope to some day. Of all the people in the world, I would guess that only a very small percentage have seen one, and you are one of the lucky few. I too am jealous. Thanks for sharing.

Richard

Thanks Jen, Maxime, Dave, jealous Susan (LOL! you are so funny!) and Heidrun.

It's difficult to get the gif to 'flow' naturally, the aurora had moved so much for a 50mm lens in 13 seconds. But it sure was fun! (it was hard to hold still and not jump up and down while doing this)
