Green Aurora begins . .
Around 10 o'clock last night - I looked out and saw the Aurora Borealis beginning its dance in the northern sky. Naturally I wasn't ready - so I grabbed my camera, snapped it on the tripod - used a slow shutter, and pressed the shutter button by hand. I didn't even take the time to get my remote, or to set the timer. I was actually anxious to dive into my cozy bed and settle down to finish an exciting book I've been reading all week. While this is far from a great shot - I just thought I'd let my Flickr friends see what the aurora looks like from the north side of my cabin. (Press L for best view)
