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.

Edinburgh – Some Epic Skies

I was in Edinburgh last weekend covering a basketball game again. However, the photos I have for you today aren’t of the games. Maybe next post. Since I was on a fairly tight schedule, I couldn’t take my time with taking photos, but I took what opportunities I could to get a few anyway. Being very busy, I don’t have the time to write a full article, unfortunately, but enjoy these four selections from last weekend.

The sky in particular was quite something.

Metering the sunlit part of this building meant that the sky was properly metered as well.

Sunrise, not sunset, if you were wondering.

Part of Arthur's Seat. Realised after we came down that I had chosen to climb up the harder path. :/

Will bring you some basketball later this week hopefully. 🙂
