Aurora australis

I was up late on Saturday night and saw a few posts on Facebook about people out photographing the Aurora.  It was pretty cloudy, but I decided to jump in the car and go and have a look for myself.  It was pretty hard to see with the naked eye, but through the lens it looked pretty cool.  This was the first time I’d gone out to photograph an Aurora and I think I need a bit more practice, but I’m definitely hooked – it’s such a wonderful phenomenon to experience.
