Updated 9/14/2014: The photo and time lapse below were featured on last night’s NBC Nightly News! The Northern Lights footage starts at the 12m46s mark.
The Northern Lights were visible from Northern Vermont shortly after 8:30 PM EST. I grabbed my camera gear and ran down to the beach on Lake Champlain to snag this shot:
The above shot was taken with my Fujifilm X-T1 and Rokinon 12mm lens. The exposure was 10 seconds long at f/2.0 with ISO 1600.
Once I took a few shots, I decided it would be worth running a time lapse. You can see the full timelapse below:
Note: the apparition in the frame may or may not be Champ. Or it could possibly be my neighbor’s Golden Retriever.
