Aurora Borealis Dancing Across the Sky…

On the early morning of November 3, the sky came to life and the aurora borealis danced across the sky…IMG_3470

Then they sprang to life!  We could even see color with the naked eye…IMG_3508 IMG_3523-2

Still dancing as I headed inside for the night, outside the bedroom window…IMG_3544

Star Trails and Northern Lights…

Last night’s buzz was that there was a pretty good possibility of seeing northern lights, which is something I’ve been wanting to try to shoot for a while now.  I’ve also wanted to try shooting some star trails, so here are my first attempts…IMG_1989-Edit

The bright green glow from the northern lights…IMG_1995-Edit-2IMG_2004-Edit

I thought these were pretty fun to do and can’t wait to do some more the next clear night and throughout lambing season.  🙂
