Despite the cloudy sky I decided to go out and explore he options for photographing an Aurora Australis from a location near home. The outing wasn't a complete success but I was reasonably happy with my first effort. I'll have to keep my eye on the Aurora forecast and refine my night sky technique.
The green and slightly purple tones in the back ground are the Aurora the orange pink colours in front are clouds.
