p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Aurora - Banff National Park


Here are my best 4 from Bow River looking NE, in Banff National Park.

The sky was exploding everywhere and I chose a location to minimize my risk with a NE view. Then it went big even to the south with lights all over, but I did not have a composition (road, lights, etc.) to the South West.

1-4 of 4

Comments and feedback are appreciated. Scott

We left at 9:30pm, drove until 11PM and came back by ~3AM.The show diminished by 2:30 AM. I live 1.25 hours from this spot. So ~2.5 hours of show.

It was mesmerising but when you only shoot aurora every once in a while you quickly relearn that you must know your set up before standing in the river in the dark. My R5 was fine. But my R8 did something weird in not doing AEB when set to AEB. I have to change my mind over for spring. I also missed some shots with the r8 with moose yesterday when I accidentally set it to iso 800 - motion blur early and overexposed later.

Yes - what my eyes could see was more impressive than what I could photograph. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Just fantastic photography Scott! #1 is perfecto!

The farther North one can get the better. The colors are wonderful and your "backdrop" for the "lights" is special!


Too bright? IMHO..NO! The landscape does NOT interfere with the Northern Lights. I provides scale, depth, emotion and perspective to the vastness of the solar color!

saaketham: Yup lots of people got good aurora even in the deep Deep South in places like Wyoming . It was a fantastic night. The hard part was the aurora were everywhere and so were all the photographers. Given the next 2 years are sun high activity periods, there will be more opportunities. Glad you like the pictures.



Danpbphoto: Glad you like 1 and the background. Banff is not normally an ideal place for aurora - the aurora must be very bright. But on this day, it excelled. And was better than further south. Unfortunate I was not in Dawson City, Yukon. It would have been sweet. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Wonderful shots. I'll be up your way in July, and while I know summer is not the ideal time I'm hoping for my first view of the Northern Lights.

The corona shot is by far my favorite! Hope you get to shoot more (though probably late in the year rather than in summer)

Great shots! I tried to get one like your image #4 but I couldn't quite get it to turn out like that.
