Farmstead Northern Lights
Posted By: aitrus3, 08-07-2018, 08:05 AM

I had been down at the beach of my parents farm waiting for the weak northern lights to make a burst, but I had waited a while and I could also hear a rogue bull from a farm up the road in our yard. Fearing an attack from a spooked bull in the dark of night, I decided to pack it in. I got up to the house and looked out the window to see that the lights I had been waiting for just exploded. While being north enough to see events as little as KP 2/3, it's not quite north enough to use an exposure less than 30s and an ISO less than 1600, unless the display is KP6 or up. I think this night was predicted to be a KP3.
I stepped out onto their deck and shot a quick little panorama of the yard under the lights.
