Needles in the air

Like needles in the air, all sky in Emerald lake (Canadian Rockies) was covered by Northern Lights of all colors, shapes, and intensity, dancing non-stop until the first lights of the sunrise. Moments worth living for.

i like the shot ...just wondering about the noise in the water/reflection is that just a side effect or is there distortion?

Thanks Joseph!! The noise in this case is a side effect of raising the ISO to capture a sharp Aurora. If you expose longer than 2-3 seconds the Aurora becomes blurry, so need to raise the ISO. You can solve this doing a blending, but this was just a single shot ;)
