Merry Christmas

I think it goes without saying that 2020 has been an incredibly difficult, stressful and anxiety inducing year, so lets hope for something a little calmer in 2021….although I have a feeling that the first few months are going to be just as painful.

Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for all the support over the past 12 months. Take care and stay safe:

Night Sky 6

Not the greatest shot of the Northern Lights in the world, but then it wasn’t the greatest display either. However it does at least prove that we saw them.

Interestingly, to the naked eye, the Aurora came across as a much paler green than this, more like a grey-green mist just above the horizon. It’s the camera that’s really picked up the luminous, glowing quality…..and I promise that I haven’t enhanced this too much in post-processing.

Firelight

The images below are from a night-time camp “expedition” on an island in frozen Lake Inari in northern Finland.

The light trail in the second image is from someone wearing a head-torch walking across the frame……one of those totally unintended pieces of good fortune that just happens to add a little something to the shot.
