The Northern Lights 2011

The Northern lights of 2011`s first season was awesome !
It was also my first season of shooting auroras :D
And yes i learned a lot !
Can`t wait for this season comming up now ! The auroras isn`t regulated through seasons, but you know the dark and the light time with midnightsun, you can`t see it. So now, the dark comes around again !

This night was pitch black with some few stars visible, no aurora activity.. But ! It seems like it`s just around the corner before i`m standing out there shooting again !

The seasons, or the light and the dark time, whereas the dark is the months when you can see the Auroras, where i live !

It`s from September too April ! so it should be possible to see it for 8 months ! if you are lucky with weather too ! and the activity is great too, this year 2011 there have bin only 2 ! spotless days of auroras with none activity !!! So there`s some pretty extreme things going on at the sun !

For this picture particular it was shot at that awesome day of the 14-2nd-2011 !
Shot in Norway, Bodø local at the fields of Festvåg, Where a lot of my pictures here on Da was shot ! and XD the picture was a little out of foucs :P

It was shot at 21:53PM ;) here are links for other pictures shot the same evening / night :

The show`s start : [link]

The finale ! : [link]

Me in action ! : [link]

Also keeping my beloved D300s :D

Have a great weekend all you dA friends and watchers !

How long does this go on where you live is it all year or a seasonal thing. It is fantastic you get to see this so often.
Reply
:iconsindreahn:
SindreAHN Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011  Professional General Artist
it lasts all the year and you can only see it when it`s pitch black out there or late sunset with high activity, and if you read the text you will find some answears ;)
If you live above the artic circle 66.5* you have a good chance to see it !

No it doesn't even snow at the place I live except in the mountains. So no Auroras for me unless something freaky happens.
