Saint Patrick’s Aurora
Canon 5DIII – 24mm lens: 2.5 seconds on f/1.8 at ISO 6400
The night after St. Patrick’s Day brought out the Aurora Borealis over southern Alberta. Along the Elbow River, west of Calgary, the bands of color rippled in the sky and on the surface of the water for several hours. I met two photographers, Stacey and Clif, out on the berm. They had come out to Redwood Meadows in search of the Northern Lights. The show took a little while to start so it was nice to chat while we waited. When the lights did start to dance it was beautiful. I will share more images from the night soon as the colours and mood changed throughout the night and allowed for great variety.

Truly stunning pics ~ as it is the little things like the ripples/reflections in the river that add so much to the shots you have shown.
