Fire in the Sky

Location of photo
Mount Rainier National Park
Date/Time of photo
June 23, 2015 at 2am PST
Nikon D800 and 14-24mm lens at f/2.8
This image taken on June 23rd contains aurora from a large solar storm. This was the first aurora I was actualyl able to visibly witness, albeit without the color that the camera picked up! I chose this location in order to reflection stars off the lake and to also have Mt. Rainier in the background.
