Northern lights and motion

Aurora borealis photo, or northern lights, Alaska.

Trying something different – the northern lights and a little motion. Click on the image above to view a larger version of this photo.

Hey Folks,

Just trying a little something different; hoping to give a little sense of motion to the northern lights the other night.

Not that I’m bored shooting the northern lights, or anything; just trying to see what else might work.

Thoughts, anyone? Works? Awful? WTF?
