Northern Lights in Redwood Meadows

Aurora Borealis - 2013 © Christopher Martin

Canon 5DIII camera with a Canon 24 f/1.4 lens: 1.3 seconds at f/1.8 on ISO 2500

The Northern Lights were very active last night.  For three hours I was outside watching the show in the sky and it was the best I have seen so far this year.  This image is from a particularly wild period where there were many streams of light rippling together beneath the stars.
