Nightscapes in Kananaskis

A 25 second exposure and a fast lens (in this case, a Canon 24mm f/1.4 set at f/1.8) revealed wisps of clouds stretching east across the Kananaskis River valley a little after 4 in the morning on October 7th.  The soft green glow betrayed the Aurora Borealis pulsing low over the northern horizon.

Red light from my headlamp illuminated Highway 40 in this 10 second exposure that centered on the hazy Northern Lights.

  1. First I saw the clouds and aurora, then the stars-so pretty. That is an interesting effect from the headlamp contrasting with the sky, too.

  4. It’s a fact that the photographer’s skills and the photographer’s eye are critical, but there are times when equipment counts, too! These are wonderful photos and allow those of us with different cameras and lenses to see the world in wonderful new ways.
