Aurora Images

Was lucky enough to take a visit to Alaskain June of 2011.

We arrived in Anchorage and then made our way by train and carto Chena Hot Springs at the end of the road heading north. The purpose of the trip was to get to see the Northern Lights, The Aurora Borealis. These images
were taken at 3.30 in the morning using a Canon 300D with an 18 – 55mm lens.The air temp outside was around -35c so things started to freeze very fast. I had trouble when it was time to pack up as I could not fold the tripod to get it into the doorway. These shots were all long exposures of different lengths.Most images were taken at around 15 seconds with some processing in Photoshop
