And now for something completely different…video! Well a video made from about 700 still photos.
On the last night of our canoe trip this fall, I set up for a time-lapse overlooking Drope Lake, in Northern Saskatchewan. I originally just wanted to capture the rising moon(just passed full) and the stars over the lake but a while after setting up we noticed the Northern Lights were out. And where they ever bright! We commented that we hadn’t see Aurora like that in years! So what to do, interrupt the time-lapse to photograph the Aurora from other locations on the island or leave the camera and just sit back and watch them dance? I decided to leave the camera alone. I knew I would get some of the Northern Lights in the fame but I wasn’t sure how much. After viewing the images I’m glad I did! Enjoy!
If your bandwidth allows, watch it in full screen HD on Vimeo.
Great video. Really appreciate what you accomplished
I have seen more of your photography on occasion – sent to FB by various classmates and friends.
This is simply magnificent and means much more to me since I’m now living back in Scotland where the likelihood of seeing the lights is slim unless you live way up north.
Thanks to Maurina I now have it on my timeline and when home-sickness erupts I can go look at it!
It’s wonderful to have mega talented former students – thanks a million!
Thank you very much Mary…that just sounds wrong…Ms. Nienaber!
The northern lights have been quite amazing here over the last year or so. Which is great to see because prior to that we were going though quite an “aurora drought”.
Really glad you enjoyed the video and am very happy to be able to send a little bit of Saskatchewan your way!
