Photographs of aurora taken by Don

PHOTOGRAPHING THE "NORTHERN LIGHTS" IS A CHALLENGE. The first 12 images were taken in March 2013 when we had a great display. The main problem is figuring out the aperature and the shutter speeds. These were taken at f3.2 and 25 seconds with an ISO (ASA) of 400.The next group were taken on our earlier trip.

The next photos are those I captured on my first attempt to photograph the aurora in 2006. Both 2006 and 2013 sets were taken in Coldfoot with a few of the 2006 pics taken in Wiseman.The conditions in 2006 weren"t quite as good as on the 2013 trip.
