There was a storm and then there were lights.
Last Thursday and again on Friday, September 11th and 12th, the sun sent a blast of energy our way in the form of a coronal mass ejection, or CME. While these strong magnetic storms can cause problems for electrical grids, GPS, and radios, what interested me, and just about every other photographer I know, was the light show.
You see these potentially damaging solar storms are also what gives us the Aurora Borealis. otherwise known as the Northern Lights. While much of my photography takes place during daylight hours, the reported potential intensity of the Aurora, and the fact we don’t usually see the Aurora this far south, had me grabbing my camera and heading for the mountains.
To a book of poetry near you!
I’m quite pleased to announce that the book “White Mountain Poems,” by New Hampshire author Jeffrey Zygmont, will be hitting the shelves very soon. Along with the photographs from three of New Hampshire’s most talented photographers, will be nine of my images, including the one you see on the cover.
Very exciting indeed!
…With A Little Something Extra.
The view of the Presidential Range as seen from the Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorites in New Hampshire.
Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so..
