Magnetic Storm

    Newer Older

    Magnetic Storms on the surface of our local star create an electrical flux in the solar wind which hits the Earth about two days later, spiralling down thru the wells in our planet's magnetic field north and south, bequeathing to us these vivid displays.
    Shot at Lake LaBerge, Yukon Territory the night of February 28.
    Taken with a Fujica ST605 35mm SLR and 16mm Zenitar lens on NEW Fujifilm NATURA 1600. (photo is straight from Walmart ... no image enhancement)

      Far too many awsome shots in this set, and nice to see someone using film (although I've moved on, sorry!)

      A stunning set Sir
