Lights Were Out Tonight


Valentine day ended with the most amazing Northern Lights display over head…….my husband was on his way out to feed and water his chicken for last time for the day …..he came back into the house just to tell me to get my camera and tripod because the lights were dancing overhead…….. ran around grabbing things and trying to remember camera setting ….. remember where I had put my remote button…..gloves know I have gloves… finally out the door and to the middle of the driveway……find a focus point of interest …what is this there is a message on the screen saying No memory disks loaded ………back to house grab disk …focus and set camera for remote again ……shoot and wait …I wait the remote out….I count…..nothing … see nothing ….waiting for remote timer is maddening ….there are lights building all around me …reds….greens….blues …light pinks around edges…..nothing I am seeing nothing on the screen….after about two hours give up … mad ..what did one forget….. why is there nothing showing on the screen……come inside load disks and wait ….all the little patches are black…nothing is appears…but wait …there is something every other patch of black has some color….I was shooting in raw ….just happy there was something to look at and remember the joy of the lights….there is way to much noise to print the shots but i made a collage to remember the time and the wonderful end to another Valentines Day
