Default Northern Lights from Maine

Drove 7 hours up to Lily Bay State Park for this yesterday.





I've got more that I still need to sort through.

Unfortunately, we didn't really get any of the colors in person. It was just like a light grey, but the camera picked it up.

Glad you got some shots. Thanks for sharing.

Been anticipating a nice weather all weekend but unfortunately all I've got was cloudy skies and yesterday was rain...
... still raining as I type.

Nice shots. I like the addition of the foreground and reflection on the water.

Nice! 7 hour drive!? geez. I thought getting up at 1am and driving 20 minutes was bad haha. I couldnt see much either exept for a greysh-green tinge in the streaks but my camera picked up a little.

This was without a tripod, just sitting on the dash of the car, everyone in the car kept moving around despite me being a **** about it so its a little smudged. It was my first aurora experience Though it wasnt the best show, my mind was still blown.
