I'm back!!!

Dancing lights, Yukon Canada
Nikon D800, Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8
ISO 1200, 15 sec exposure

My apologies for the lengthy absence from my blog and photography.  From now on I'll be posting on a regular basis - promise!  

Last night the northern lights returned to our northern skies. It was well worth the effort to bundle up and spend a few minutes photographing the lights despite the fact it was a bone chilling -35 degrees Celsius.  

This was to have been the week that astronomers and photographers across the North were hoping to spot and photograph Comet Ison as it graced the wintery sky.  Sadly, the supposed Comet of the Century, did not survive its close encounter with the sun on Nov 28th.  Many of us were hoping for a repeat performance of Comet Lovejoy's stunning display in the southern hemisphere in 2011.  Oh well, next time!

Hope today's blog finds you all well in your corner of the world.

Good to be back on-line.
