Valentine’s Day is over and in standard form, I am sick. After a day of deteriorating health, Kate has talked me into staying at home today. Since I’m coughing, sneezing, my nose won’t seem to stop running and I feel disgusting, that idea sits well with me.
After I opened Kate’s presents of camera goodies last night we were treated to a really nice surprise; the aurora came out early! So early that even Kate was able to go outside to watch! There were some incredibly brilliant moments during this show. Unfortunately, with my head in a different place full of cold medicine I wasn’t on the top of my game while shooting the skies. At one point I knocked the camera out of focus for about 10 minutes and didn’t realize it (next time I’ll remember tape). Another time I thought I was going to do timelapse and switched over to jpeg mode from RAW (.NEF), changed my mind, forgot to switch back and now I have a bunch of low resolution and blurry shots. It was not a very successful photo shoot. I’ll write this one off to the head-cold. Here’s a few of the shots that I did manage to get through the sick, medicinal haze:
