Picture of Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) over snow-clad mountains in Northern Norway
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.

  1. This was one of your better images, and that says a lot. Certainly a motivation to visit Northern Norway during winter.

  2. 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?

  3. 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 …

  4. 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.

  5. 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!
