Aurora Borealis

December 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

On a frigid walk home from a friend’s house, watched the sky around the North Pole prepare for Santa’s annual trek through the heavens. 

I had seen hints of the aurora borealis a few times over the past year, but never as dramatic as on Saturday night. I was not expecting to see them, so I wasn’t prepared to do anything with them photographically, but I did try to capture them first with my iPhone 5 and then with a DSLR (without a tripod!).

So, on Christmas Eve when you look north, I hope the sky brings you something spectacular.
