I was shooting a sequence for my second time-lapse project, and was looking around in my bag for something to eat when I noticed that everything was bright around me.
The northern lights had flared up, and best of all inside the frame I was shooting.
This was absolutely unexpected since I was shooting to get the rest of rock comet 3200 Phaethons passage.
But I certainly appreciated the luck in it.
Shot with Nikon d800, 14-24mm f/2.8 @ 14 mm, f/2.8, 6 seconds, Iso 3200.
Post process: +30 clarity, +19 vibrance, +10 whites, -10 darks, contrast +20, temperature increased by 150 ( for the feel of fire ), detail extracted and sharpened in photoshop.
( I know I have submitted a lot lately, but I just had to share this one. )
