After dozing off early in my recliner tonight I woke up to a text from a friend who was out on patrol tonight. He noticed that the Northern Lights were in full swing. I grabbed a good friend, hopped in the truck, and took off. We were not disappointed.
As I mentioned recently, I’ve had some health issues and other things that have just plain sidelined me as far as photography and blogging. This was a great way to get back in the saddle for a bit as much as my pain would allow, and happens to have been one of the better aurora borealis nights in a long time. Just because I’ve been in my recliner doesn’t mean I haven’t been watching what the sun and skies are up to.
We appear to have arrived along one of my favorite rural roads just in time to see some very spectacular lights. We saw spikes, we saw ripples, and we saw a lot of them. I worked the area the best I could within the time allowed, and we pointed the truck back toward the Bizzo once things began to taper off.
I can’t speculate on the frequency with which I ease back into my beloved photo hobby, but hopefully this is a harbinger of good things to come. With the weather changing in our favor and another spring and summer on the way, things are looking pretty good. I hope to be on the mend in time for mountain bike and volleyball season, too!
