I was out at a party with my buddy from Illinois, Matt. I met Matt last year out in the park and we went on some fun adventures together both in the park and in town. His family had just left and it was his last night here so I met him at his friends apartment. I was there for a few hours before I got the text that the auroras were out from my friend/ coworker/ old roommate Mike. I immediately set out to get some nigh shots with my new lens and was amazed at the intensity of the auroras. I had been shooting them for about a half hour when Matt pulled up and got some shots too. He didn’t stick around too long but I was out from 11pm to around 3am bouncing between multiple locations in the southern end of Grand Teton National Park. I have been asked many times if I enhanced the photos at all but all I did was reduce the noise. Here are some of the images I captured.
The first two images are shooting from Gros Ventre Junction north towards the Airport. The next two were shot from behind Black Tail Butte. The last one is shot near the intersection of Antelope Flats Road and Mormon Row.
