Aurora Borealis

My first attempt at night photography! These are Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, that we saw at Reid Lake in the Northwest Territories.

 

Taken using a tripod, but holding the shutter open with my finger for 2 minutes. No remote release so there was some camera shake. :( Next time I'll be better prepared.
