Beneath Colorful Skies by tfavretto Beneath Colorful Skies by tfavretto
An M7-class solar flare from Sunspot 696 hurled a coronal mass ejection toward Earth that sparked extremely bright aurora borealis over much of North America during the early morning hours of November 8, 2004.

Amazing job again on capturing this. I like the addition of the fence as well.

I'm not sure if the blue was actually there, or if it was a result of my post-processing on the image. But the red/pink was definitely visible. That was the only time I've ever been able to discern any color besides green in the aurora with the unaided eye. Usually the camera can pick up those reds and purples when I can't see them, but this time I actually saw the red. It was beautiful.

Still, it's a great image.

I've only seen the aurora once (large glowy blob to the north), but it was both red and green. Like you said, it is amazing and beautiful.

I've seen the northern lights once, but they didn't look nearly as good as this. I love the strong colors and the smooth gradients. The fence and the grass at the bottom add a lot to the piece. It looks more like a painting than a photo.

I have always felt that this is one the better aurora shots! The fence line just adds so much majesty to this celestial evenT

Thanks. You live in a great area for seeing auroras too, so I'm sure you'll be able to get some great shots sometime soon.
