Aurora Borealis — Sept. 18, 2023

Aurora borealis

There were some north­ern lights again last night. They were pret­ty intense; not quite as bright as the shows back in March, but noth­ing to sneeze at either.

I took both my cam­eras to my favourite spot and snapped pho­tos for about an hour. (No kid­ding; all the pho­tos below were tak­en between 10:14pm and 11:16pm.) Out of just over 1000 pho­tos, I present my 27 favourites.

All the pho­tos were 5‑second expo­sures, f/2.8, ISO 3200, at either 11mm or 24mm.

Here’s a quick peek behind the cur­tain: com­pare the unedit­ed pho­to to the ver­sion I’ve uploaded.

Inter­est­ed in prints of my pho­tos? Let me know, and we can work some­thing out.
