So coming across the Hecate Straight the other night, about an hour out from Haida Gwaii, I notice the sky is awfully bright for 10pm on the horizon. Being used to seeing city lights reflecting of clouds/light pollution, I put it down to coming close to the coast. Then it clicked that I was in the middle of nowhere, at least 6 hours from civilization and there were no clouds for light to reflect off of. I opened the door to the wheel house to look outside without the reflections of the computers on the windows and BAM. I SEE THIS SHIT. This is the second time in my life I’ve been able to see the northern lights. Incredible stuff. It was impossible to get a good photo when the boat is moving up and down and side to side and and the best you can do is 3 second exposures at 6400iso just to get anything, but it was cool enough just to get to see it. I need me some f1.4 50mm or better or something for next time.
