Through the clouds

On the night of the 24th of April, 2023 (ANZAC Eve), I headed out to photograph the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights). As it was consistently an 8 on the KP index, the pursuant light show did not fail to disappoint at all.

As I was photographing through the night, I noticed clouds rolling in and instead of being disheartened, I was secretly happy to see clouds in the sky. I personally feel clouds add quite a bit of drama to landscape images especially during sunrises and sunsets. Hence I was quite keen to see what effect the aurora would have on the passing clouds.

I kept photographing until the entire sky was overcast. I was pleasantly surprised at the resulting images and just love the way in which the colours of the aurora get transposed on the passing clouds similar to what happens during a sunrise or sunset.
