A Blazing Background

The Aurora Borealis above Mount Hood, Oregon.


This is a wider shot than the last and shows the clouds to the west side that thwarted my effort until I crossed over the ridge to the east side. These shots were made around 2:30am Sunday morning. This is an unprocessed jpeg straight from my camera.


I was so excited!!
