Golden Sunrise in Delta British Columbia

I waited a very long time for the right conditions for this shot… I was coming off shift early on a weekend morning, so the sun was just coming up, tide was beginning to roll in which attracted the Great Blue Herons to feed, and just enough cloud to create rays.
Taken in Delta, BC, near Roberts Bank where I work. June 4, 2017

Aurora is a glow caused by the interaction of Solar wind particles with the molecules of Earth’s Atmosphere.

This spectacular aurora was visible on 27th February 2014, from Iceland, South of Reykjavik.

The photo was taken with a DSLR Canon 550D and a fixed 50 mm lens.

The exposure was varied from 15 seconds to 50 seconds and the image is a HDR.

The time was around mid-night and temperature was nearly zero degrees C.
