Lots of people discovered and captured this famous location. Due to this, I decided to visit this place in the middle of the night to get my own unique version of this beautiful fishing village. The conditions were perfect and the northern lights hit the sky in a smooth way. What a beautiful travel destination!

Behind The Lens

Location
Lofoten, Norway
Time
12 AM
Lighting
I took this shot right after midnight. Most of the photographers were already gone, but I decided to give this location another try. The soft Northern Lights made a perfect background for this shot, while the lights of a bridge enlightened the foreground.
Equipment
Pentax K-1 - Pentax 15-30mm - Tripod -
Inspiration
My dream to capture the Northern Lights started in 2016. During my time in Canada (British Columbia / Alberta) lots of travelers told me that they went to Alaska and Yukon to see the Aurora Borealis. My schedule didn’t leave any space for such a long trip north. Nevertheless, I promised myself to discover these beautiful lights within the next years. This year, my dream finally came true: I got one night with strong auroral activity.
Editing
Regular Lightroom development and a few color corrections in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
My Pentax K1, Pentax 150-450mm, Pentax 77mm limited, Pentax 15-30mm, Rollei tripod, a few filters
Feedback
To capture Northern Lights? Prepare yourself and don't hesitate to take several shots. The lights appear only for a few minutes. It's hard to find a composition. Check the weather forecast, get to know the area and prepare your camera before you leave the car.
