Aurora Reflections

On 05/10/2024 10:34 pm by Susan Jensen| Odessa, WA

I waited till very near astronomical twilight to head out to one of my favorite places to shoot at night. This was taken facing due east. I love the colors boldly reflecting on the surface of the pond. For almost 2 hours I was serenaded by at least a million frogs, various water fowl and splashes of fish jumping. This night was pure bliss.
