Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera April 4th 2008. Click image for larger view.
We had some beautiful northern lights (Aurora Borealis) some nights ago here in Northern Norway. It was pretty jaw-dropping to watch the lights traveling incredibly fast over the sky so I had to grab my camera to share it with you all.
In this picture I have used a 10 seconds long exposure time to capture the northern lights over some snow-clad mountains. Please click on the image to look at the larger 1024×768 version to better view the northern lights and mountains.
I think this was the last northern lights this season as the midnight sun will appear in some weeks and the nights will be too light to observe the northern lights.
Check out my photo of some northern lights over our boatshed on New Years Eve.

This was one of your better images, and that says a lot. Certainly a motivation to visit Northern Norway during winter.
Outstanding, Thomas. Even better than your New Year shot. Bravo! (Dugg and Stumbled.)
Are the lights still visible this time of year, (mid-April)? I’m thinking of heading up from Stockholm soon. Great pictures!
Thanks Geir and Bobbie 🙂
Hamilton: You better hurry! Still a bit dark in the middle of the night, but wont last much longer.
simply stunning. I love visiting your site.
Guuuud, men jeg savner det! Hjertelig takk for at jeg fikk se nordlysÃ¥ igjen.
superbly nice!! 🙂
That is just something.
wow, looks like green silk…. thanks for sharing, must have been a very nice trip
wow, nice one
Wow. Great photo.
Astonishing! Hope one day I can experience this phenomenon. Really amazing picture.
Indeed, very beautiful Northern Lights ! I would love to witness it myself one day !
As I visited Norway last year, I found these pictures fascinating. The one of the aurora borealis was beautiful.
Thanks for the advice. I’m headed up to Kiruna this weekend. Any tips? (Other than hoping for clear weather 🙂
Wow! I’ve always wanted to see the northern lights. They must be something else to see in person.
That is just awesome. I have never seen anything like that. I would love to be able to see something like that in person one day.
Great picture of an amazing atmosphere phenomena – so well captured.
Did you know that’s the reason why I call my blog ‘RennyBA’s Terella’ from when professor Birkeland who started the surch of this in the beginning of the 1900:
not to sound like everyone else but the first word out of my mouth was WoW when i seen this pic!
well done Thomas 🙂 – are you selling printed copies of your photos?
WOW! That is cool, even cooler that you get to see if up close and live.
Wow! That is just amazing! I’d love to see it firsthand someday… but your incredible photos will have to do for now!
What do you use for noise reduction?!? 10 seconds on my E500 get’s me something that looks like an ISO 3600 film scratch!
Either you are very patient or have a sweet cleaner …
What a beautiful shot! An awesome natural wonder!
it has been my wish to see the northern lights.
Pretty cool picture, mate!
Very beautiful!! That’s something I would love to see someday. My husband saw them when he was in Alaska and said they are even better in person.
Very nice picture!!!
Absolutely breath taking! Thanks for sharing your photo!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful skies…
been missing your regular updates.
I made it up to your neck of the woods last weekend. I missed the Northern Lights, it was already too light out it seemed, and then some clouds rolled in.
The country up there is just incredible though! Thanks for pointing out the area with your blog! What a beautiful spot!
I love the lights and the snail shells.
A truly gorgeous blog.
Look forward to coming again soon.
Wow! I have never seen anything like that. Beautiful.
This is a great picture!
wow! i’m speechless!
