Well it was rumored that the Aurora Borealis was going to be visible on the Connecticut shore line this past weekend so we trekked down there after dark and found a suitable place in the dark near a river with as little light pollution as possible which just isnt easy in Connecticut or the entire eastern seaboard. But we tried and trekked with friends down a wooded trail in the dark which brought uncomfortable feelings to the fore. But the fact is one just cant get truly lost on the Connecticut coast. There are houses and lights everywhere.
We set up and waited messing around with our setting but nothing really happend. It occured to me that I really dont know what to expect. I mean I have seen pictures but never SEEN them. Seeing and photographing the aurora borealis is definitely a bucket list item and it was not achieved this weekend but we had a good time with nighttime photography which I am definitely new at. The following pics are kinda cool in that I have never tried any night time photography. These are all 30 second exposures.
I definitely want to try some more night shots even if I dont see the Aurora Borealis its fun to experiment.
