Autumnal Aurora

Crazy-beautiful aurora tonight at Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park displaying autumn colors. The most intense show only lasted 15 minutes, 8:15 - 8:30 PM. I'm very pleased with the night sky images from the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 lens. I decided to try switching between vertical and horizontal orientation for my shots. The vertical image had the best capture of the northern lights (and I prefer the vertical). Two fun things happened during this shot: (1) a shooting star and (2) car headlights illuminated a couple of rocks in front of the Bubbles and the western shoreline. Enjoy yet another Jordan Pond Aurora shot. To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my nature photography workshops in Acadia National Park.

EXIF data: Nikon D800, 21mm (Zeiss), f/2.8, 15 sec, ISO 3200, 10/7/15, 8:18 PM
