During the week I went out every evening hoping to see the magical show unfolding before my eyes. Saturday I got lucky and went up on a hill just sitting and laying down while watching the green blankets and stripes curling around on the sky. I took on my earphones and put some music on.

Photo details: Canon 400D, with a 10-20 mm Sigma on 10mm, f5, ISO 100, 30 sek exposure AP Mode

I travelled to Norway last week, from UK, for the Valentine solar activity. Stayed just outside of Karasjok in Finnmark, Norway. We had clear skies and a fine display of Northern Lights on every evening with Saturday Feb 14 giving the best display. I wanted to capture the aurora combined with a star trail to see the effect. Here is the result. Nearly 300 images of 15 second exposure time (approx 1.5hrs) worth of time in one image. Taken with Olympus E3, 7-14mm lens at ISO 320. Stacked and flattened in I thought it looked kind of neat and definitely something different. Also a few other stills from trip.

#1, #2, #3, #4, more was correct that Valentine's Day would give us a fine show of aurora borealis. We spent over two hours at different locations around Kangerlussuaq, Greenland photographing varying degrees and colors of Northern Lights.
