Well almost. Friday morning proved to be a great day for photographing the Aurora Borealis. In fine form for St. Patrick’s day. I headed out west of Edmonton trying to find the edge of a cloud front that was over the city. About an hour west, clear sky. Guess what else was out… the Aurora! Here are a few time lapse movies I have put together. I will be returning to this location for sure. It was a fantastic old farm right next to the road with so many buildings to photograph. A lucky find, as it was at the end of a range road.
The sky exploded in this series. I was in the middle of a lens change when it happend. I actually missed the start of this sub-storm.
Here is a sequence done with a Fisheye lens. EF15mm f2.8. In this sequence you can see how quickly the aurora can change!
Go check out the Video Gallery for the rest of the movies from Friday.
