Quiet aurora band - 28.9.2022 at 00.00 - 28.9.2022 at 00.45 Torsken, Norja Observation number 110872

Visibility II / V

Atte Ahola, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Expectations for the evening were high, because we had arrived on the island of Senja to the wonderful scenery. The sky was quite clear, so we headed to the pre-planned shooting location. At the end of the Gryllefjord. The place turned out to be a very dark place when the moon did not illuminate the landscape. Perhaps it was too dark because the mountains couldn't be photographed as the shadows were visible without burning the sky.

The northern lights were surprisingly quiet that night before the clouds arrived. I expected that the lights would have risen over the fjord and I would have gotten the picture I planned, this time it didn't and the picture is what it is. An amateur level picture though. Let's hope for better luck next time. As a bonus, a picture of what looked like the Milky Way, which was nicely visible from behind the mountains. A skilled cameraman would have gotten a great picture of that too.

Kiitos! Harmi ettei tulet jaksaneet nousta päälle saakka. Olisi ollut makea saada vihreä valaistus vuonolle. Mutta täytyy olla tyytyväinen että edes tälläisen kuvan sain.
