Title: Slieve Gallion Night Fog
Post by: martinastro on April 01, 2010, 09:45:10 pm
Took this image last week during the middle of the night from the very top of Slieve Gallion while hunting for aurora/NLC locations with Conor. A warm front was moving in, ahead of it was this large fog bank which formed over the 'urban island' of lights belonging to Magherafelt (?), image is looking E as the bank approached. Time exposure at ISO800 using live view to get focused. Looked like a great scene visually at the time.

Yikes, Magherafelt twinned with LA! Just look at that LP.

Nice capture!  Those NLC aren't that far off now (hopefully!) Martin

Double yikes!! My first thought was the same as Paul's, looks like a mini version of Los Angeles as viewed from Griffith Park or Mt. Wison Observatories! Great shot though Martin.
