No Aurora - Canon 5d w/17-40

I went out late the other night to see if I could spot the aurora that was visible over the UK but clouds along the horizon scuppered that plan. Here's what I came home with.

    It wasn't a total loss. This is still a pretty good image. We had the same problem here around Toronto. It was teaming with rain and we couldn't see the lights everyone was anticipating.

    Nice low-light shot. I would've gone one stop higher to clear some of the shadows at the bottom of the image. Nice work thought :) the weather it's always an inconvenience

    I like how the lights are strung out along the horizon. The contrast between the sharp relatively still foliage in the foreground and the slightly blurred slow moving clouds is interesting as well.

    It has been a long time since my last visit, but in the meantime the sheer quality of your photos has not changed. Bravo!
