Description Hi,
I am Canberra born and live in an area with quick access to pollution free dark skies. I use full frame Nikon DSLR and Nikkor lenses to capture the night skies hopefully with some interesting foreground. Since seeing my first Aurora Australis in 1989 when I was living in Hobart Tasmania, one that filled half the heavens with a visible pink/red glow that I mistakenly first thought was the glow of a distant bushfire, I have developed an interest for photographing the aurora. With the ready availability of critical information about solar weather available on-line and collected by the DSCOVR spacecraft, it is possible to anticipate the arrival of conditions favourable to the aurora more accurately.
Applying this information, it took nearly a year before I captured by first Aurora Australis from just south of Canberra on 23 June 2015, in minus 2 degrees at 5.00 am in the morning. This featured in an article in the Canberra Times: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/…/like-curtains-being-ruffl…. This aurora was visible clearly to the naked eye with reddish/pink beams visible to the side of Mt Tennent, near Tharwa in the ACT. SInce then, another of my aurora shots has been published in the Canberra Times: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/…/stunning-skyfirelike-auro…
My shots are printed with quality ink intended to last around 100 years without fading so the impact of the stunning image is preserved. Prices for prints are below.
