Nikon D750 with 14-24mm lens at 14mm and F/2.8


This image has a lot of firsts in it for me. Until this image, I never captured an aurora, or air glow in such a remarkable manner. Being out in the Badlands at night was an experience I recommend everyone try.The calm air and lack of noise made for an incredibly peaceful night under the stars, I felt as if I had the National Park to myself. The emotions I felt after capturing aurora and air glow were of elation and utter respect for our beautiful universe.
