Poolburn at Night – Victoria Bowman
A group of us were fortunate to stay in a fishing hut at Poolburn Dam in April. A quick test shot after dinner revealed the Aurora was firing up, so we shot down to the lake shore. The night was moonless, and absolutely still which gave us great reflections of the milky way, the airglow and the aurora. The lake mist then began to form, which proceeded to fog up our lenses, which ultimately ended out night of photography . So we headed back to the fire in the hut and a have whisky to warm up! The following night there was another aurora too, so a fabulous weekend in the wilderness to explore and inhale our stunning dark skies.
