“Before the Dance” by Joe Clark

Captured in Petoskey, Mi on 9/4/2022

Nikon D850 30 seconds f./4.5 ISO 800

The northern lights were out in full swing this week when Joe made these captures. “Before the Dance” was a unique capture which had both the glow of the setting sun and the aurora in the same exposure. This is a delicate balance of exposure and timing to get these two into the same frame.
