Northern Lights….from KS

Okay, so I heard a good photog buddy of mine from NE KS was capturing some crazy good Aurora activity last night around 9:20.  I also caught wind of a guy down in Arkansas that was even capturing them.  I guess you could say the northern lights are on my bucket list of things to see and capture so of course I had to drive out and see if anything was happening around my neck of the woods.  I didn’t make it in time to capture the maximum of the storm.  The lights I was able to capture were so faint that it barely looked like a red hue to the sky, but even then, you had to use a little imagination.  However, a long exposure with a fast lens was more than enough to capture the wave as it was weakening.

  5. Awesome shot. I’ve only seen the Northern Lights once before, and that also was in Kansas. I guess the wide open spaces help the view. Cool shot.
