From Ben about this image:

– Shine like a star –
I took this picture at Lake Rotoiti, New Zealand, in April 2017.
The red and green glow in the center is an aurora. A couple of days before, I just didn’t even know it was possible to witness this phenomenon in New Zealand! The day before this shot I met another photographer who told me that some great southern lights was expected in the most southern part of the South Island for the next days. It was a huge (and welcome) surprise for me being able to see it from Nelson’s Lakes which is rather in the north part of the South Island. Moreover it fits perfectly in my composition, straight in the middle of it ! What else?
It was the first time of my life I saw an aurora. A dream come true. Even if it was only a small one, I just felt like a kid at Christmas : happy ! ūüôā
PS : English is not my first language, I apologize for any mistakes I could have done writting this post. ūüėČ
Panorama made of two rows of 14 photos each. One for the sky (f2.8 ISO 4000 30s) and one for the foreground (f3.2 ISO 6400 120s).
You can noticed that the reflection of the milky way on the lake is not really at the right place, It’s because of the projection I used in my panorama stiching software (Hugin).
