Magical Kingdom of Aurora

    © 2012 Starlisa Black Photography
    Last night I got transported into a magical Kingdome of the Far Away land of Aurora where silence fills the void but the silence is rich with song of the universe... a land where frozen snow is on the shady side of lake where I am but not on the side I am shooting... a land where peaceful bird and elk sounds weave a lullabye, where coyotes yap their nightly song

    magical colors filled the air briefly behind the Moonlit Mount Adams and Lenticular Clouds that lingered for hours.

    breathe deep of the mystery, take it all in thru your pores to feed the cells of your body...

    yes, I saw the Aurora Borealis on a small scale behind the Lenticulars over Trout Lake, Washington and I was thrilled as I lounged on a frozen snowbank at midnight waiting for a long exposure shot... BLISS I tell ya!

    This is a Quick Lightroom 3 process on the RAW file done on a friends computer since mine had just died causing me to lose Photoshop

      Beautiful. Do you get to the Oregon Star Party (mid August)? If these aurorae continue until then, it is VERY dark skies and would be incredible...
