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. The lights started to dance like crazy and I nearly forgot to take some images. What a show!

The depth of this image is amazing. I feel I could step into this shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
Close to a small road in the middle of Lofoten, Norway.
Time
Around 9pm in the evening.
Lighting
It was quite difficult to get this shot. I expected the Northern Lights in the other direction over the open sea. Due to that, I had to find a new spot as fast as possible. The red hut appeared over the hill and took my chance. What a spectacular light show!
Equipment
Pentax K1, Pentax 15-30mm, Rollei Rock Solid 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.

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.
