Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was captured from the East Shore of Flathead Lake in NW MT.
Time
Around midnight MST
Lighting
This was an unusually strong Aurora. I spent some of my "growing up" here and never remember seeing them in my youth.
Equipment
Nikon d750, Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens; Three legged Thing tripod
Inspiration
My brother and I were camping with his kids. It was my niece Ciri's 8th birthday. I had the honor of sharing their first experience of the Northern Lights on this amazing night and they can remember that experience with this photo.
Editing
Very little - only a bit of work on sharpening. This photo is basically just as it showed up on the boc.
In my camera bag
I carry WAY too much stuff, but I never want to miss anything! Camera(s), three Tamron lenses (15-30mm, 28-300mm, 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC) and a Nikon lens (105mm); travel tripod (Three Legged Thing: EVO3 Punks Vyv Aluminum Tripod and Mohawk Ball Head), lightning sensor, filters,notebook & pen, extra batteries and charger, extra memory cards, waterproof cover, dust cloth and cleaner, a whistle and a 9mm Smith&Wesson.
Feedback
Practice shooting at night by getting out there and continually playing with ISO and length of exposure.
