Nighttime - steve-coyle

Midnight Sun

Being north of the 45th parallel lends to long days, especially on the day after the summer equinox. At 11 PM the sun was still bright enough to make nighttime photography quite difficult. In addition we had a full moon rising. However, I persevered and got off this shot. Didnt' really think much of it in camera, but after darkening the image some, I believe I can see a hint of the aurora borealis, something I've always wanted to see, but never have. Who knows, it may just be another cloud wisp, but I like to imagine that it was the aurora borealis and I just got extremely lucky on this capture.
