June 22 2015 - With news that Mother Nature was going to put on a Northern Lights display we headed to one of our favorite spots to view and capture them – Moosehead Lake, Maine - located just above the 45 degree latitude point. The show started just before 10PM. It ebbed and flowed through the night until almost 3AM - this was easily the longest and most impressive aurora display we have witnessed.
The Visual: a huge green arc with dancing spikes and pulsating waves of light that stretched overhead & over 180 degrees across the sky. At a few different points it was a variable rainbow of colors. All of this was being perfectly reflected in the smooth-as-glass water right in front of us.
The Audio: a nearby crackling campfire, the call of the loons, some crickets & frogs and the occasional sound of a chipmunk scurrying past.
All footage shot with Nikon D600 & 14-24mm and D7000 & Tokina 11-16mm.
f/2.8 - 15 seconds - ISO 1600 - 18 second interval (3 second gap in between exposures)
Processed and rendered via Lightroom CC, LRTimelapse & Photoshop CC.
