Nordlyset

The earth always has some magnetic excitement going on. The solar flares vary along with the cloud coverage. Despite the likelihood of northern lights being frequent, so far in Nevelsfjord, they have been a special treat. The Bayer Filter (wiki) is responsible for the dramatic green hues often seen in images of northern lights; so when I processed these, I allowed the star blur, and white and blue tones to shine through. The movement of the visual was softer and more rapid than I had pre-conceived. Kjerringøy is dark early at night since geographically resting above the Arctic Circle. While this doesn’t exactly inspire the feeling I usually have to take a nattur, or hike at night, I was able to nab these images right outside the front door. I hope the softness of the image comes to you with the delight of feeling.
