Hey Folks,

From a trip up north in March. I thought the power pole was a nice silhouette against the northern lights, and waited for the brake lights of a car that drove by to add some drama to the foreground. The northern lights came on particularly bright here, briefly, and the only way to add any detail in the foreground was light it up. I liked the drama of the red.

I wanted to get a little tighter on the pole, but the moment only lasted a couple of seconds and it was over.

How’s this work for you?

Cheers

Carl
