Auroras Borealis - Northern Lights

I met recently a swedish photographer and he showed his Northern Lights pictures, which were absolutely amazing. Therefore, I got an urge to hunt Auroras Borealis too.
One evening the sky was clear and full of stars, I managed to borrow a car and I went to Grotta near by Reykjavik. Fortunately the Northern Lights appeared but unfortunately they were preatty small. But here are some pictures from that night and when I have finnished one film in the camera I will post more pictures. (ASA 100 Dia 35mm)

Blue greenish Aurora B

Lighthouse at Grotta

Blue greenish Aurora B - clouds are cathering from North, which looks nice front of the AuroB

Lighthouse, and on left there is a light from a passing boat.

It is quite difficult to take night picture with old fashion film camera (digi cameras you see the result right away), you have to think of the lighting carefully and if the aim of the picture has a light source or if there is a moonlight one have to take it in consideration. - That night here was a fantastic moonlight, almost full moon.. The swedish photographer gave me tips to film Auroras, if it's fast moving then shutter speed should be no more than 5 seconds (to be able to get the form of it) and if it's slow moving then you should use 8 seconds..

So the hunt of A Perfect Aurora Borealis has started!!! - let the autuum be lightfull. Posted by Picasa
