Don’t Forget To Turn Around

These are from the shore in front of a rented cabin on Lake Superior.  The air over the lake was a little misty so the Milky Way wasn’t as defined as I was hoping, but it was still pretty nice. I just happened to turn around to shoot northeast and got a surprise.  At first I thought it was just the cabin lights making some beams in the mist but after the first couple exposures I realized I was getting northern lights (a camera sensor can capture much more than the naked eye can see). I only got the edge because of the direction of the shore but I got some keepers.  Nice bonus.
