But there is nothing we can do if the Auroras don't show, and I have gotten spoiled in recent years with Auroras that are bright and show lots of colors.

September last year:




November, I believe:

Sick photos. Will have to check out Chena Lakes next time its active How much lightroom editing is contained within those photos if you don't mind me asking.

Canon RAW photos, CS6 increase brightness, Tokina 16-24mm profile, + Nik Pro Contrast, and cropped accordingly. Then a copy sized to 860 pixels horizontally, saved to post on the Internet.

I walked outside at 530 this morning and was greeted by a beautiful arch of the lights and a shooting star. They must have been great last night if they were still out that late!

I'm currently on one of the offshore platforms in Cook Inlet. Had a really good flurry an hour ago and it has since tapered off, but I would imagine she'll be back around midnight or later. I'm using a co-workers camera and have no tri-pod. These dang platforms always have some slight vibration to them. Hoping to get at least one decent shot out of this storm.

Elegant shots there Ray!

Fairbanks and North Pole were covered with clouds last night, and tonight (Saturday) it is the same.
