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.

West Kirby Golden

This shot was taken a couple of weeks ago and is a view from West Kirby on the Wirral looking out across the Dee Estuary towards Hilbre Islands sitting on the horizon.

I’ve used Nik’s HDR Efex Pro 2 software to combine together three bracketed images of the same subject but with three different exposures.

This is my first ever HDR image and as such I would particularly welcome your feedback on this one.
