The First Aurora Outbreak by SindreAHN The First Aurora Outbreak by SindreAHN
Norway, Bodø, Local place Festvåg.

When we arrived at our shooting place at Festvåg we didn`t even see activity of Auroras.
Then suddenly only 10 minutes after we arrieved we could see some giant columns stretching over that little peak named Finnkonakken.

This picture was shot some few minutes before one of my moust famous Aurora shots here on deviantart, [link]

The temperature was -37*C effective or -34*F, with the wind included !

The Auroras started out of nowhere ! As I today know is very common with auroras ;)
The show lasted for over 1 hour ! The colours was mostly green and purple :D It moved very fast and changed in look and density of colour and light during the whole hour !

I just bought a new lense for the upcomming season :D

How do you protect your lens at those temperatures?
Reply
:iconsindreahn:
SindreAHN Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011  Professional General Artist
well-- I wipe off the frost on the lens with a fibrecloth, and hope for the best, also when not shooting, i`ll point the lense downward.

Years ago a camera store owner told me the story of a guy with a Hasselblad that walked in from the cold and cracked a lens. OUCH!

Last year I was at a theme park that had a building with artificial snow in it. After a half hour inside I walked out into the hot Thailand air and my camera view finder immediately fogged up and condensation formed between the lens and UV filter. My first thought was what's going on inside the camera. I removed the lens and was relieved to find it moisture free inside. Even so, I decided to keep the lens off the camera for a few more minutes, just to be safe.

I had completely forgotten about the Hasselblad story until I saw what was happening to my camera. No doubt the high humidity here made it worse.

I don't expect to encounter a situation like that again here in Thailand, but it was definitely a lesson learned.

I see ! I`ve learned that lesson too ;) Shooting pictures out in the winter, and right into the living room with 20*C + because my mom was heating up the fireplace to it`s extreme !
The camera fogged instant ! The viewfinder, and the room with the filter.

But i didn`t have any problems with it for cracks or so on.
Maybe cause i drive with aircondition in my car from where i shoot the pictures, so the trick is that the camera slowly reach the same temperature conditions ;)
