Sky Lights

This July 4th storm passed over Lancaster County but drifted off to the right of the frame. Shot in the early AM hours, this is a composite of eight seperate images over the course of a half hour. All except base shot at 50mm (FF), f/4.0, 30 sec., ISO 100. Base shot (farm, foreground) at 50mm, f/5.6, 46 sec. ISO 400. Tripod used, no filters. Each image had its own levels adjustment as a clipping mask and overall the red and blue channels were swapped to alleviate the orange light pollution above the buildings.

 

Looks best on a black background, press "L" or click image to view on black.
