Last night Hilde Van Den Heuvel and I ventured out into the darkness with little hope of seeing the aurora like I had the night before. A solar storm watch had been issued for Tuesday night, and then extended to last night, so Hilde and I decided to give Big Island a hook. We kept a close eye on the Kp levels but, it didn't look hopeful for us to see any northern lights last night at all. We did, however have a fantastic night shooting the Milky Way, and we event ran into fellow photographer Hilary Hendsbee who had the same thing on her mind, and two STFX football players shooting with steel wool. Seriously, when you're out night shooting you never know who you're going to run into, but probably other photographers! Hilde and I were actually pretty glad to run into the guys on the beach. Their steel wool lead us right back to Hilde's car, man we walked far!
Probably one of my most favourite pictures! Fiona + Nanny The family trying really hard not to laugh and stay still for 30 seconds, it's not as easy as one would think! Hilde shooting the Milky Way at Big Island
