Aurora from Oslo, Sweden

WOW! Amazing. The soft quality is mind-blowing and now remixed! I'm interested in taking sky by night-pictures, does it require expensive equipment?

11 Oct 2012 7:52am

@Aurora: Thanks ! It does not require expensive equipement. With some technique a tutuorials that you can find on the web and a good tripod, you will be able to do it. Auroras append very often from where you live, which is not the case here... so you will have the chance to practice a lot ! ;)

Fantastic capture of this truly beautiful display of light. You have brought back memories from when I was fortunate enough to see and photograph this spectacle while visiting Northern Sweden. The reflections of the aurora in the water are excellent.
