Auroral Reflections by tfavretto Auroral Reflections by tfavretto
A surprise display of the northern lights, as seen from the edge of Highway 548 at Quebec Bay, roughly 50 km southeast of Sault Ste. Marie, ON. I normally monitor space weather conditions so I'm able to know when there will be a chance of seeing the northern lights, but this came as a complete surprise one night when I was already out shooting.

Yep, although the purples were a bit too faint to see with the naked eye, the camera picked them up quite nicely.

I named my first born daughter Aurora, and when I say her name, I see THAT picture in my head <3


i think it helps that purple and green are my favorite colors... all of your Aurora and star pictures are the cat's meow!

Thank you, and thanks for the :+fav:! I didn't do much to this shot, just brightened it, boosted the contrast, and made the stars stand out a bit more. The colors are natural.
