Auroas over Finnkonnakken by SindreAHN Auroas over Finnkonnakken by SindreAHN
That mountain back there is named Finnkonnakken. Festvåg where a lot of the aurora pictures have bin taken from is to the left of Finnkonnakken. Norway, Bodø

Also notice the cottage there ;)

I used some different settings on the camera or metering or something, realy i don`t remember but i made it look like more night with that setting, so i`m studying my camera settings to find out what was differenet in this shot ! To become better next season :D

11-3-2011 We had some -20*C this day ;) the wind was calm :D

This picture will also be submitted to a lot of groups to show deviantART the auroras !
Many peoples comment and love my pictures of this phenomen ! Which im very grateful for ! :D And i did laugh here one day, one of you dA friends asked if this was real or if i had manipulated the picture ^^

The only thing manipulated or edited on my Northern Lights pictures is a personal watermark, some pictures have bin edited darker, to give a more night look ! Without braking on the aurora itself ;) . Pictures taken in the moonlight give a lot of overall light, and less night feeling.
But in this shot i used some settings which captured light and colour in a great way, and included the night, the pitch black sky with the stars :D ! I will check out more on that :D as im very happy novadays I`ve got my D300s back from service yesterday :D


well well enough talk, want to see more pictures, please see this link : [link] ! Have a great weekend :D

Have you been using your tripod and taking long exposure photies? We had an eclipse here last week (still need to edit the photies =D) and we used the tripod and long exposure to capture the moon as it was eclipsed by the earth.

Ok! Just thought that I'd ask =D Sounds REALLY cold! Well, you do some freezing for me! =D I'm still freezing here though! But not quite as cold as -30! Hey, you can make loads of ice pops! But I'm not sure what the market for ice pops will be like there! =D

Beautiful. The last Norther Lights I saw were a couple years ago and they were vertical streaks of purple all around. :) Usually I would say that the image would be better without the house, but in this case the house gives a sense of size and depth. Nice

It looks great... in our latitude we never see the nothern light.

And, sadly, there's too much buzz and noise, activity and movement around - just can't seem to find an easily accessible place to do a night shots...
