Lady Aurora Did Not Dance!

The Aurora Borealis would not come out and dance last night. It was shy and hid behind the clouds! Actually made for a cool picture!

The Northern Lights photo was taken about 8:20 pm, and given the almost full moon combined with the fact it was not yet truly dark (2 hours after sunset of 8:35), my camera settings were quite different … ISO of 800; Aperture of 2.0; and Exposure of 6 seconds.

Oh yes … our yard was also invaded by late season migrating birds!
