This shot is incredible: I suppose it was quite difficult to reach the right balance in exposure. Congratulations.
beautiful,awesome and amazing...and how lucky you are to see this in person! keep up the great work!
Wow great photo! I love the composition and lighting. Beautiful!
As a young amateur photographer, National Geographic has always been my biggest inspiration!

love the colors and the lighting especailly the sky. I forget what that light is in the sky. We deffinetly don't see that in Florida.
Everything about this photo is interesting. The AB, the twig teepee type thing and the red lodge with the white light blazing out-really adds something. The spectators add to the fact this is a significant event.
Have seen the Southern Aurora in Tasmania, Australia though not as impressive as this, and a great photo too.
I've seen northern lights in Norway for the 3rd time a few months ago and it's just an amazing experience! We really caught the perfect night and an incredibly strong Aurora Borealis. Much stronger than the one in the photo :)
@orange Doctor Thank you! :) They are such a beautiful phenomenon
@Eben Johannes Labuschagne Thanks Eben! :)
@Olivier Bernard Many thanks!
@miriam manganiello Thanks Miriam! :) It takes a little practice but gets easier every time! :) The full moon was behind us and helped illuminate the landscape a little too =)
@Emma Tanglevine Thanks Emma I certainly feel very fortunate to have seen them so many times.
@Mairead K. Thank you! :) Was a pleasure to capture. I'll check out your work!
@Victoria R. Just like us in Gibraltar :( Just tooo far south. But on the plus side you guys get to see some wonderful Milky Way's from that part of the world =)
@Allison K. Thank you very much Allison! =) Was quite fortunate to have the teepee there! Makes shots like this so much more interesting I think. Everyone just ran outside without their jackets despite the freezing cold and I really like that you can see that =)
Thanks very much strobe! So glad you have seen them, nit yet seen the aurora australis! But seen the borealis many times such a beautiful phenomenon :)
It really is Davide :) yea for sure this wasnt the strongest display but there were some interesting shapes this night :) think this one kinda looks like a dragons talons. Or maybe its just me hah? :D
@Natalia Robba ya I can kind of see it.( Dragon talons)
