Northern Light Road

Newer Older

Another one from last friday night. You would think you couldn't take a bad photo of the northern lights, you would think wrong. I have tons of horrible pictures of northern lights, I even have two of them with shooting stars clearly visible! Anyway, some tips for shooting the northern lights if you have them in your area:

1) Warm clothes, I mean it!
2) Tripod.
3) Brightest & widest lens you have.
4) Never go beyond 30seconds to avoid: a) startrail b) blurry smudgy northern lights. The shorter exposure time the better.
5) Highest ISO you and your camera can live with.

Zeiss F-Distagon 2.8/16 (Rollei QBM mount adapted to EF) - 15 seconds@f/2.8 , ISO3200 (distortion corrected)

PS. More aurora pics...

    This is staggeringly good! (I know I have seized on another Aurora shot :-)) but it is so wonderful a natural phenomena and this is so well done with the road leading in.)
