Northern Lights above Lopsmarka and Landegode by SindreAHN Northern Lights above Lopsmarka and Landegode by SindreAHN
9/12-2012
I know it was reported to be some activity this evening. But it was cloudy and i had a lot to do after comming back home from the course :P
Later during the evenign the clouds left and the sky was filled with stars and weak auroras :D
So i went out ! Mostly to let a friend of mine to see the lights ! She was very happy ! :D

The weak show actually got brighter and active ! We enjoyed it for an hour ! It was active for 10-15 minutes :)

We drove to the parking spot at the Turisthytta cottage, where we had a good view north and to the show in the west and east :D

I didn`t think very much when i saw the lights got brighter above Landegode Island, so i just fired away !
And when we got back I see that i was surrounded with some trees ^^

Have a nice week everyone ! It`s soon christmas :D

More of my Northern Lights pictures here :

Do you have any advice on how to get photo's of this?
I am going Iceland in 6 weeks where i'm going on a trip to see the Northern Lights.

well have a good lense with a f at 2.8 is good, or works with f3,5 as highest aperture setting.
use your highest anyway :)
iso from 500 to 1000, you can experiment with that, it depends on what you get to see.
how strong it lights up and how fast it`s moving.
your shutter speed from 4 to 30 seconds, depends on your camera.
for example you see the settings needed for this picture.
Shutter:13/1 second
Aperture:F/2.8
Focal Length:11 mm
ISO Speed:500
It wasn`t moving that much, but it was quite strong light from it.

Here is one with a fast moving light :

where settings was
Shutter Speed:8/1 second
Aperture:F/2.8
Focal Length:11 mm
ISO Speed:640

that could be some advice ;)

Wow I never saw northern lights before! (except maybe on tv)
Brings back so much great memories cause there was supposed to be a showing of the N.L. but it wasn't dark enough and it turned into star gazing... and it was on July 14th. ♥

Var ute selv den kvelden, men selv om jeg bor 20 min gange fra turisthytta, så kjørte jeg ut til geitvågen og knipsa litt der:)
