This colorful aurora was just one moment in a four hour display during a solarstorm. The reflections in the lake were fabulous- it was a very dark clear night- no moon. Penny's Lake is a small lake in northern Saskatchewan. There was no ambient light.
For more info on auroras check out the 2 previous aurora shots.
I used manual setting, exposure was about 8 secs. I used Neat Image to reduce the noise.

I was wondering what was the black bar in the middle of the picture until I read your comment. Then it was a WOW because the aurora itself is already crazy, but with a reflection on water, that's a first time seen for me.
I wish I can see such a spectacle too. I just had some samples of auroras two or three times around Montreal, but nothing like this.

Wow! What an amazing natural show mother nature has put on! I have never seen anything like this before in my life. The range of colours is so impressive, I wish i could see something so vivid and strange in the night sky. Well positioned, especially with the inclusion of the lake also, with the reflections an extra special addition. Superb.
