Aurora Over the Lake

We had been chasing the northern lights for a couple of days now. After two nights with no results at all, yesterday the gods of Valhalla smiled at us. Well, it takes quite a bit of planning (location-wise) as well as weather and aurora forecast monitoring in addition to some help from Asgard.

Arrived to the location just around sunset, so we had a little time to find the best place. We were eagerly awaiting the dark since hemispheric power already crossed the 30GW line, meaning that a gorgeous display was going to happen. And it did.

During the night we photographed three locations, and the above image is one of my several favorites. How the Zeiss Otus 1.4/28 on the Canon 5DS R performed is simply breathtaking. It resolves fine filaments, colors are stunning, stars are mostly points (there’s a little bit of coma wide open).

It was the best aurora photography session of my life to date. And not just that, but an unforgettable experience.
