There’s always one out there

Sometimes, in night photography, a little light is a good thing. Selfie and aurora over New Zealand caught in late April by The Darker Arts.

Bruce MacKay of The Darker Arts captured this photo in late April 2017. He wrote:

I had about 4 kilometers of coastline free and just as the aurora was flaring up, someone came along and decided to set up straight in front of me and flash their torch around. I asked them to kindy move out of my scene, but got no response, so I walked over to ask again. That was when the lights came alive and a friend hit the shoot button on my camera just in time to create this selfie!

There’s always one out there…
