Patricia Beach, Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Details:
We spent the Day and Night at Patricia Beach, 60 km north-east of Winnipeg, MB. It was full moon (thankfully it seemed to stay low, though it was casting definite shadows on the beach) and at first we were convinced what we were seeing were clouds or contrails due to the bright moon. However, it soon became apparent we were in for a few hours of great viewing! The 'dancing' was breath-taking on several occassions. Photo details: Canon S3, 15 sec exposure, F2.7, ISO 200-400.
