Last night as I was walking home from dinner with friends I noticed that the lights were starting to dance over Duval. I started to walk faster to to get home, the whole time my mind was going so fast as I tried to remember where I had left my tripod, headlamp and trying to remember if my extra camera batteries were charged! I got home, found everything I needed and changed into some warmer layers…first time this season I broke out the long johns!
I called my friend Mike and asked him if he wanted to go shoot. He agreed so he came by my house to pick me up and then took off on his skidoo. We headed off to get out of sight from town’s lights to be able to see the northern lights better.
It is a truly a magical moment to be able to experience the lights dance over your head on a cold winter’s night. It’s a sight I won’t ever get tired of.
Thanks Mike for heading out with me it was a fun night!
