Airglow II

Airglow II


On a serene evening at Lake Copeton in Inverell, I set out to capture the stunning beauty of the Milky Way as it spanned across the sky. The calm waters of the lake provided the perfect mirror for the celestial display above.

The most captivating aspect of this night, however, was the presence of an extraordinary red and orange airglow radiating throughout the sky. This rare phenomenon, caused by the interaction of cosmic rays with the Earth's atmosphere, added an ethereal quality to the scene. The vibrant colors of the airglow cast a magical reflection on the still water, creating a mesmerizing harmony between the sky and the lake.

As I set up my camera equipment, I couldn't help but marvel at the breathtaking canvas unfolding before me. The combination of the Milky Way's glittering stars, the vivid airglow, and the tranquil lake was a sight to behold.

To fully capture this celestial spectacle, I took a series of photographs, meticulously aligning each frame to ensure the perfect composition. The end result was a stunning image that showcased the enchanting dance of colors and lights in the night sky, with the serene lake acting as a beautiful counterpart.

This experience at Lake Copeton serves as a reminder that nature holds awe-inspiring surprises, and as a photographer, I am privileged to witness and capture these moments in time.
