Paint it Black
Auroras were thought by some to be spirits of their departed friends dancing in the sky.
So having a Church in the foreground seems appropriate,
& this black church is a real beauty
Religion itself just passed me by. I think I only managed a couple of Sunday school classes before being overcome with boredom. Being forced to go to church didn't last long either - never could do the "We follow you like sheep dear Lord" stuff, just because everyone else did. - still waiting for something to convince me about religion although the Church works well here.
If you stop & consider how incredibly complex & magical life is - I do believe there's something spiritual going on & that our soul may live on when our bodies die.
I'm convinced my wife was a fly in a previous life - which explains her abject fear of spiders :)
Swiftly on before things get too dark & maudlin...
This was a lucky shot, our 7th successful night out of 9 Aurora wise.
We'd driven over in Aurora chasing mode from the North side of the peninsular, which was completely obscured by cloud - the weather forecast was spot on, predicting a break in the cloud here.
We set up on the lawn & the lights kicked off just long enough to get half a dozen shots before the clouds you see here blew over & engulfed the shot completely. A very small window of opportunity but luckily we caught it just in time.
I reckon someone up above was smiling down on us??? :))
Thanks for all the comments & faves which are much appreciated :)
