Northern Lights Dance on the Winter Soltice Lunar Eclipse

DJ LeMay

Port Alexander, United States

Artist's Description

Hah! Say that (title) three times fast!
Tried many settings capturing the winter soltice lunar eclipse… Man! It was cold! Clouds flying thru… camera malfunctioning because of the freezing temp… and then after warming up the camera, I had an idea to try a high ISO shot to see if I could get something just a bit out-of-the ordinary. Granted the eclipse was nearly over but WOW!

RAW processed in LR3: camera profile: landscape & then because that darkens the image I turned up the fill light a tad.
