One night a month or so back there was a lot of auroral activity and everyone was talking about it on Facebook so I decided late on to take a quick, icy jaunt up to Cornalees to see what I could see. I randomly setup the camera on the tripod, pointed it at the sky and opened the shutter and took this to see if there was going to be anything worth shooting. Turned out I had well and truly missed the aurora and a car came down the road with it’s headlights blazing through my exposure.
The car came into the car park and the driver got out and started chatting and we spent the next hour in the freezing cold talking photography and cameras and astronomy before heading our separate ways.
This isn’t a good photo in any way really, but it reminds me of a peaceful night and some good conversation, and sometimes that’s all I need in a photo.
