A few pics of the northern lights last night here in Montana. First 3 photos all taken with the 6D and Samyang 14 2.8. Last picture is an 8 photo pano taken with the Sigma 35 Art. I seem to have captured a bit of a galaxy in the top left portion of this picture, any idea what it is??

Beautiful series, David!
Love #3 and 4.
I'm from North Dakota and you just made me homesick for the big skies of the Great Plains.
Thanks for sharing.

p.s. Where's the snow? :-)

Gorgeous! I wish I lived where the northern lights are easily seen. On rare occasions, we see them in northern California.

Thanks! We haven't had many good decent Northern Lights the last couple years, so when I got an alert that they were active I knew I had to at least go out and try to get a shot!

Nice stuff. Some of my friends are in Iceland now and I was supposed to go but cancelled due to involvement in other project.
