Aurora Sommaroy

Newer Older

Been a while!
Just thought I had better upload something to let you know I am alive. I have been off flickr for a while busy with family and work. My camera has been repaired from its' Atlantic swim and seems to be working nicely. I have been out a bit but have come home with nothing great. Yet to get a 'proper' session going yet.
This shot was taken this January in Sommaroy at a cool spot we searched out during the day and then spent 7 straight hours standing on that night. The aurora wasn't as amazing as on other nights but was still good enough :) You can just make out two photographers on the hill trying to ruin my shots as usual, Tony Spencer and Ole Solamonsen I think. This is two shots focus stacked, lower iso narrower aperture fg. Hope you are all well, and thanks for looking.

P.s. Watch this space for an upcoming Workshop announcement for August in Cornwall. Should be action packed.

Exposure 19

    This is spectacular Joe. I must say you made the best out of your trip. I can hardly imagine someone going on "vacation" to this part of the world during the winter. Shows dedication. Respect! :-)
