The old Highland Schoolhouse by photographer Robert Spradlin

By Robert Spradlin

It was late spring when I got the alert that there might be a visible aurora borealis, so I packed up my gear and headed to my favorite spot on the plateau, the old Highland Schoolhouse.

Sometimes photography is a bit like a Rolling Stones song: You don’t always get the shot you want, but…

I saw this gorgeous layer cake of color, the new wheat bearing witness to the night shooing the day away, and immediately began scrambling for a  composition.

All my gear was ready to go and it didn’t take long to get the image. This light, these colors, were gone three minutes later.

I stayed there till the wee hours and never did see that aurora. I didn’t mind a bit. Being out there doing what I love was more than enough.

I am a Wenatchee based portrait photographer, specializing in pet photography. Senior and family portraits and professional headshots are also available.
