Alerted by a post on facebook from Todd Dopkowski that there were northern lights devloping over his place, Lisa and I looked outside around 8 pm, but didn’t see much. Foolishly we didn’t then get all the camera gear setup.
By 9pm it was showing, and 30 minutes later it was on. Then the scramble for the tripod, camera etc started. These are the pictures that Lisa took on her Nikon D50.
At the same time, Roger fumbled around with his Canon PowerShot S2 IS trying to find a setting that would work, and managed this poor imitation of Lisa’s pictures..There were some amazing other pictures captured in various places. Here are a few links:
