June Aurora by Armelle Troussard

June Aurora by Armelle TroussardThe recent solar storm didn’t translate into an awe-inspiring display of northern lights here in Canada, but the Sun’s post-solar-max activity is an encouraging sign that the auroral show might not be over just yet. This year has produced a number of fine displays, like the one that occurred last June, captured in Armelle Troussard‘s beautiful image.

Armelle made the photo from Porteau Cove Provincial Park, just north of Vancouver, British Columbia. She used a Nikon D800 DSLR camera set to ISO 3200 for this 4 second exposure with a 14 – 24mm zoom lens at 14mm and f/2.8.
