Moonlit Aurora

A shot of yesterday's aurora, even though it was against the odds. Sometimes you get lucky when there is a strong aurora forecast, a full moon, and clouds. Not a perfectly clean aurora image, though mood evoking ... I like 'dark and moody'.

A noticeable aurora, great foreground reflections in the water, purple clouds, the western shoreline bathed in moon light, the Big Dipper, and if you squint (or enlarge the image) you'll notice that the Bubbles have a moonlit strip. Am I reading too much into this image? Oh I think not!

To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my landscape photography workshops in Acadia National Park.
