"Aurora In The Alps"

Aurora Australis. Mount Buffalo National Park, Australia. 17th of March 2013

With predictions of a fairly strong geomagnetic storm due to strike the Earth, I packed up my camera gear and headed to one of my favorite locations. Without mobile reception up there I had no idea what the aurora numbers were doing so all I could do was get setup and wait until it got dark.

This is the first time I have been able to see an aurora with my own eyes. Watching the rays and arcs flow across the sky was amazing. I have hundreds and hundreds of images from this wonderful night to go through. A crescent moon off to the right of frame helped light up the landscape during this single exposure.
