Chasing the Aurora by erax7

Sorry for the bland title – been a bit tired recently 😛

I recently went on a great trip to Norway with my older brother Steven and my oldest daughter Jessica.

We went as part of a an organised trip with Chasing Lights ( Weather forecasts while we were there weren’t good – but the organisers were probably best described as persistent as we travelled far to break free of the cloud cover. Unfortunately my daughter fell asleep for the main show and was difficult to wake.

We stopped at 4 locations on the way out and came to this one. The foreground was unfortunately rather flat (being a field of snow) – so it’s making your own foreground interest with a self portrait. I discovered many issues shooting the aurora and hopefully have the opportunity again in the future to shoot it again with those lessons on board.

“Night Affair” – Azores

I felt like an astronaut here, 350m above the crater lake in the twilight of the dawning day. If you ever have planned to visit the Azores: Do it! The variety of different sceneries on a very compressed space is a feast for body and mind.

Utopia by PaulZizkaPhoto

What’s your idea of the perfect night out?
For me, hard to beat a wild place for the tent, icebergs, aurora, stars, calm water to reflect all of it, a few friends to share the view and a cup of tea to top it all off. The only thing missing was the family!
