… It takes split second timing. Sometimes aurora hunting is the same!
Where: Taroona Beach, Tasmania
When: 7 January 2015
Equipment: Canon 1100D with a Tamron 18-270mm lens
Photo details: ISO 1600, 18mm, f/3.5, 10 sec
Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC
Notes: While it can be hit and miss catching a good aurora show, it wasn’t this night. It was a balmy clear night, with a spectacular show that lasted for hours. And although the moon (which can wash out aurora shows) was just past full, it didn’t rise till closer to the middle of the night. This gave us a good couple of hours before it started to affect our viewing.
