Airglow over Milford Sound

  • After driving through Fiordland from Te Anau in the dark through avalanche zones we arrived at Milford Sound at about 5.30am for some astro shots before an 8.20am sunrise.
    Standing on the shoreline in mid winter, the temperature was fresh but the light was magnificent.
    This is airglow, not aurora. Not visible to the naked eye but the ability to capture long exposures with high iso on modern cameras allow us to view this stunning light we wouldn’t otherwise get the chance to.
