Aurora Australis – Storm.

Tasmania, and Southern Victoria witnessed a fantastic Aurora last night and I managed to shot quite a number of great shots.

The Aurora was quite visible with the naked eye, and it was very easy to see the ribbons, and at one stage they were so bright they were showing clearly in live view on my camera. WOW.

Hopefully we will continue to see more over the coming months.

Persistence and Patience

That’s all it takes. Finally I got the Southern Lights over the Iron Pot in Storm Bay. They were not as strong as they had been on Sunday night, and the weather deteriorated very quickly. But I manged to get a few shots before I had to pull the plug.

There were quite a few people trying their luck at the lookout overlooking Betsy Island. I think they had all left it to late (10-12pm), and there was almost nothing left of the Aurora.
