Here is a composite of the two shots, using a layering technique in Paint Shop Pro.
This is quite the score for me, first time I have ever seen the Aurora from my place let alone photograph it here.
I think today I may have been more tired than had I been out all night, kinda weird, but not when I think about it.
When I am sitting out in my truck it is not as comfy as at home for certain, but in the truck I can doze and just open an eye every few minutes to check for activity. At home I have to get up, fully wake up and navigate to the one window that faces north with a view, or go outside. I guess I could just quit after I get something… not !
Well anyway it was worth it, now I am getting ready for tonight, although we have a front moving in. Not a real big one, just about the size of Texas. Laughing, you know the saying, if Alaska were divided into two equal parts, then Texas would be the Third largest state!
Have a great evening/night/morning my friends!
