A Race Against The Weather by torivarn A Race Against The Weather by torivarn
Sometimes you've got to get lucky when chasing the auroras. This time I had an opening of something like 10 minutes before the clouds closed the sky completely.

Great photo and why I'm here. But I love your signature, it doesn't distract or take away from the photo like a surprisingly high amount of other peoples do.

It was actually my main concern before I implemented a signature to my photos; I didn't want it to stand out from the photo itself :)

It took me some tries to get the colors to a level that looked the same as I wanted. They got very satured once I uploaded it to the net

heh :) Personally I think I should have gone faster on the shutterspeed, to keep up with the northern lights, because they were moving very fast here :) So the slow shutterspeed kinda smeers the northernlights all over the sky :) Glad you like it though :)

thanks a lot for your relate of how the aurora borealis moves on the sky. :hug:
I think that it must be a pleasure to stay night after night and watch them. :rose:
