This morning I woke up a little after 6am, went out to the outhouse, and noticed something unusual for these morning hours . . . the sky was green! Finally I had a chance to take some aurora pictures with the D7000. After looking through these shots I can see that this one little camera has single-handedly eliminated most of the noise issue I had shooting the aurora with the D90.
Our little dry cabin, warm and cozy under the northern lights.
The aurora itself wasn’t too spectacular. Actually it was quite diffuse and dim. However, it was directly overhead which is always nice. How often do you get to see the aurora from your outhouse?
