Very quick process before heading to work.
Saw the start of the clouds last night and headed off with the gear to get a shot.
Much smaller and dimmer than the last show the previous week.
Nikon D3 and Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, tripod mounted, cable release and mirror lock function.
Lightly processed in Adobe Lightroom.
Taken from north Lichfield (Staffordshire).
Single shot. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 75mm, 11.33pm
The noctilucent cloud is in the upper right of the image, hovering over some beautiful pink and purple-tinged lower level clouds just after sunset during last year's autumnal equinox. A single 1/1250s exposure at f/5, 155mm, shot with a Nikon D50. No processing. One of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen!
My first sighting of NLC's season 2013... this display in bright full moonlight looking north towards Kelso racecourse around midnight.
Pentax 35mm f2.8 macro DA lens
Exp 6 secs each pane
