Aurora Borealis / North Light – october 9, 2011
Often there are problems taking Aurora pictures in bright moonlight. But this time it was just great. It lighten up the clouds and made them very nice and dramatic.
The mountain tops are covered in the first grains of snow. All lighten up by the moon behind me. The mountains in the distance are on Reinoya (Reindeer) island.
Picture taken just outside Tromso, Norway
Camera: Canon EOS 7D, with Tokina 11-16 mm f/2,8.
Settings: ISO 800, 6 seconds exposure, f/ 2.8, 12 mm
