Aurora Borealis – The Revengening

Merry Christmas – I’ve been busy (yet again), but Day 4 brought Aurora. Everywhaer.

There are actually faint red sections that were brought out when I messed with the curves. You can see it more clearly in the next photo.

Shot in RAW, the ground illuminated with a little light painting. All the photos I took were shot at the wider end of my 16-85mm, at the widest possible aperture, ISO 800 and a shutter speed of 30 seconds.

Car was lightpainted with a headtorch I borrowed.

Also, I’m switching back to the cornermark again, with a simpler mark.

Trying out a new cornermark. I've just realised it's a bit big, but it'll probably roughly look like that.

The Aurora Borealis

Standing in the ice and cold from 6pm to 2am, I thought they wouldn’t show up. But they did.

The photos I uploaded this time are 800×530, but WordPress won’t do more than 600×397 right now for some odd reason. I’ve included the direct links under each photo.

If you’re wondering, all of these appeared after 1am or so. The lens used was a 16-85mm at 16mm, F/3.5, at ISO 800 and an exposure time of 20″.

Although I’m fairly happy with the Lights last night, apparently they’re not as strong as they could be. I’ll be here for just under a week or so still. If they show up stronger, expect to see more Aurora photos from me.

I’ll be out there on a sled with reindeer tonight, so with a bit of luck, I’ll see some.
