Aurora over the Kootenays

My “quick step outside to check the sky” turned into a four hour meander through the mountains in search of aurora. I missed the big show on the 17th due to poor weather.

Worth it, though I have a lot to learn about night photography and how to capture aurora well.

These were barely visible to the naked eye. A 30 second exposure washed it right out… took a while to find settings that were close.
