Aurora Glow on Mount Adams

This is from December 7, 2013, on a bitterly cold night in Trout Lake, Washington.  It was -3 deg F and about 10 pm.  The colors did not flare up as large as some I have seen, and no pillars and such, but I was delighted with the image because of the crystal clear night stars and the light glow of setting moon and the ice near shore.    I would love to hear what you think!

Settings for this image were

camera:  Canon 5D Mark ll

lens:  Canon 28-135 IS

shutter speed: 30 seconds

f-stop:  3.5

ISO:  2500

I do still have calendars left for 2014, with a new shipment coming in soon, and you can see more information on those here by clicking on this calendar image below.
