Saturday evening, a storm was rolling through Creston, Iowa, and just as it was passing through, the setting sun broke out in an opening to the west. The colors and light were amazing. I quickly grabbed a camera and headed out the door. This grain elevator is about a mile north of town and I had just a few minutes to get the pictures before the sun disappeared.

Aurora Borealis over Lake Superior

Aurora borealis

Aurora Borealis over Lake Superior. This photo was taken from the shoreline at Union Bay Campground in the Porcupine Mountains State Park. An essentially moonless evening, and a few scattered clouds made viewing possible. I used the Canon 6D with the OM Zuiko 24/2.8 lens at F5.6 for this picture.

The critical lesson for shooting auroras is to use as short of a shutter speed as possible. Auroras are constantly moving and to get the structures, a shorter shutter speed is necessary.

Canon 6D, Olympus OM Zuiko 24/2.8. ISO 6400, 20 seconds, F5.6. Processed in Lightroom CC.
