A must tour during winter. The Northern Lights can be photographed from the middle of September until the end of March. We begin this tour with a short lecture on the technical and compositional aspects of Northern Lights photography. What equipment is necessary, how to configure your camera, composition, foregrounds, backgrounds etc.
Then we head out into the night to hunt for the Northern Lights. The bright lights are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as ‘Aurora Borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora Australis’ in the south. Aurora displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink is the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet can also appear. The lights have many forms i.e. patches or scattered clouds, streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. This tour depends on weather and sightings are not guaranteed. Remember to dress warm.
An evening and/or night tour to get beautiful photos of the Northern Lights.
