Aurora Above the Clouds

Uploaded: June 02, 2016 | Entered: June 02, 2016 20:48:10


It was late and it had been a long day, Everyone else had gone to bed. But this scene in my mind kept calling me. So I walked mile done the road in the rain carrying my camera and my tripod to capture this lighted church with the Aurora shining above the clouds. I took two exposures and blended them together to get this shot.
