Observatory

While taking this photo, the aurora was erupting just to the left of this frame. Green and red lights danced across the sky. Why didn't I shoot that instead? Well, it wasn't for lack of trying. No matter what I did, I couldn't seem to win. The compositions we terrible, clouds were blocking the view. Airplanes, cars, even a tractor passing by ruined the shot. So I turned around and captured the glow of the city lights instead. I am happy I did that.
