Fire!


Nikon D70 @ 29mm, 1/125 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200

I almost forgot about this shot. Perhaps it's because I wasn't fully compos mentis when it was taken. When you know you've got absolutely nothing to do the next day, going to sleep doesn't always seem important.

So I was sitting at my computer at 5.30am and something didn't feel quite right. I looked out of the window and thought "The sky's on fire!!" This was by far the most spectacular and intense sun rise I've ever seen. It was absolutely phenomenal... honestly. And this shot probably looks fake because of it. I just wish that I had been outside in a great location to capture the beauty of the sky properly. Instead, the view from my bedroom window will have to do.

Wow... that really is crazy! I keep reminding myself this is really what it looked like and wishing I'd seen it. Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? I lived in Aberdeen for 7 years and saw a hint of them once, got a shot on my rubbish old APS and it was one of the best shots I ever got on it.

Hey Owen. Nah, never seen the Northen lights, but it's definitely something I'll have to get a shot of eventually. Cheers for the comments
