Lighting up the night
The northern lights are one of the perks of living at high lattitudes. They are difficult to capture on film, and although I've been trying this is my best shot to date. I took this picture the other night from just outside our backdoor. We've had a few good aurora nights recently and I've been trying to get a few shots of them whenever possible.
The above shot was taken from a tripod on my Canon G7 powershot with the f-stop set to 2.8 and a 15 second exposure time. The camera does some automatic noise cleaning and outputs the picture as a jpg.
If anyone has any hints for captuing the aurora on film, please share!
