It is an absolute treat watching the aurora dance across the sky, I know I am lucky to be able to experience it so often, but you cannot blame me for capturing it every chance I get. :D

Captured at Josvannet, Nordreisa, Northern Norway.
Nikon D800E, 15mm.

Can you ever get enough of aurora photographs? I can't! The only thing wrong with this shot is that I'm not the one who took it. It is absolutely astonishing. Sure, it's not the most original subject matter. Online art communities are filled with similar images, but this one is crème de la crème.

Adherence to the rule of thirds is perfect. The image is as sharp as a tack. The exposure is correct. The colors are vibrant, but not overly saturated. There is literally NO burning and dodging required. Even the subtle fog collecting on the waterbed is properly illuminated by the shining Northern lights. I hope I can witness this with my own eyes someday.

This here is breathtaking by no means! The dazzling effects from the aurora lights and the reflection on water they made shows us the magic coming from legendary lore and fairy tales. The backdrop of the mountains and forests are perfectly done as silhouettes contrasting the night-light show we are seeing. What's even more amazing is the inclusion of the misty line that appears to be a fog. I'm not sure if that was edited in, but it sure adds a mystical feel to the stunning effects of the aurora lights. Also the nightly hues of blue are captured well!

This is so beautiful :heart: _ :heart:
I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights. I'd cry at the sight.

Thanks so much. :bow:
It is a magnificent sight, even considering how frequently I see the lights I can still remember one evening from the next and the small differences there are in movement and strenght, you will surely not be dissapointed.

You're welcome. Meow :3 
It is. I know there are people who would just say that it's too cold to go see them. 
The cold is well worth getting to see this amazing sight at least once in life.

Absolutely, I just think that sometimes people underestimate the cold and if they had dressed for it, the experience would be amazing.
