Surprise Aurora

Change is in the air in Whistler at the moment.  The sun is out, the days are warming up and the snow is melting extremely quickly.  My thoughts have turned to biking and for the past week that is all I have been doing.

Work has slowed down rapidly and a couple of nights ago it was completely dead.  I decided to call it quits, grab my camera and head down to the lake as it was a fairly clear night.  A little bit of mist, fortunately not too much.

My aim was to attempt a star trail and as I was playing around taking some test shots I noticed a very obvious green tinge on the camera that my eyes weren’t picking up.

Hopefully we get some more nights like this over the next few months.

  1. So beautiful!!

  2. Great pictures, and also your biking ones, it’s grey cold and snowy but still a bit early to ski here in NZ – trails in Whistler look fantastic .

    • Thanks Lisa,
      It’s sunny and hot in Whistler these days, great biking weather. Looking forward to a trip to NZ in a couple of months!
