Shine a Light

By Melanie_M  
One of those moments where I would have died happy! Like a kid in a toy shop, there was so much going on it was hard to know where to turn. Needless to say I didn't get cold.
Many thanks for votes and comments on the last.
For info: the exposure on this is 32 secs with some manual masking of the sky, with a mitten, to keep sky exposure around 15 secs.
On the last: total length of exposure 61 secs, with sky around 20 secs by same technique.

"One of those moments where I would have died happy!"

Yes. There are few times in one's lifetime when a special moment is overwhelming, and so powerful as to transcend life itself. I have had a few moments like this, some were very special.

A powerful image, another to add to your magnificent portfolio.

My compliments.

First class image. Thanks for sharing your method of capture. I will have to try it if I get the chance to photograph the Northern Lights as they are appearing in the skies over Northern Ireland quite a lot these days.
