The Northern Lights

Aurora Borealis
I have to confess to not knowing what I was doing. Closing in on Midnight we could see the Northern Light at home. So I took the wide angle lens with me and tried a few different settings from a few different places at Bergdalen. I wasn't all that happy with the result. But it was an unusual feeling sitting on the top of the hill seeing it for the first time.

Grattis, nu blir jag avundsjuk... Det har fotats norrsken här i Nyköpingstrakten också denna vinter. Jag har förvisso inte letat själv men skulle jättegärna göra ett försök. Som minst skulle jag åtminstone vilja se fenomenet och nu när det har varit ett ovanligt solaktivt vinterhalvår så har chansen funnits.
Nu har du bildbevis på din observation och det är bara att gratulera. :-)

Tackar. Svårt var det också. Kallt och mörkt i skogen jag gick igenom. Objektivproblen. Tamron vidvinkel funkar inte riktigt som det ska, om jag får en ny chans så får jag testa med ett par andra objektiv.

Gorgeous. I have seen them from time to time, and they are a spectacular sight to behold.

How beautiful, Stefan !
Recently I saw a similar picture of a friend of Lithuania.

Judy said...

Just beautiful! I have only seen them once.

I think you did a very good job capturing them. I would only suggest a slight rotation to make the house straight and perhaps bump the vibrance up to make that green really pop but otherwise-- congratulations! I went out and checked.. took a few pics hugging a post without a tripod and got pics but blurry - then got a tripod and they were gone.. just a bit of green mist - so you did a really good job! :-) Maggie

You seem to know what you're doing... this is fabulous.

Stefan Jansson said...

I aim to please Maggie so I did a few changes just as you suggested.

Still, a tremendous experience. We will be as far north as Fairbanks, Alaska, in August. Maybe we will have a chance.

Magical, one of the world's spectacle - so lucky.

What an amazing experience Steffe, it's a wonderous happening and how lucky you are to have captured it, super image.

I've been hearing about the spectacular Northern Lights show on the 17th. I even have a friend who is traveling in the Faroe Islands right now and she saw them for the very first time in her life. It must have been a wonderful sight.
