Norhtern Lights, aurora borealis - Aurora reflected in the calm waters of Frame Lake this evening and arching over the Prince of Wales Museum in Yellowknife, NWT, on Sept 5, 2019. The Museum exterior is lit by rippling coloured LED lights that mimic the aurora. The Big Dipper and Ursa Major are above the aurora. The arc of the Lights was brighter earlier on this evening but had faded by the time I got set, but came back somewhat, as I shot here. I shot this from Somba K’e Park. <br />
<br />
This is a blend of a 8-second exposure for most of the scene, with a 0.25-second exposure for the buildings and flag avenue at right, to reduce the glare from the lights and retain details. All at ISO 1000 with the Sigma 20mm lens at f/2 and Nikon D750.
