Of course, this is something i long hoped for shooting and i was lucky enough to see some, despite being there rather early in the year.

It was a great evening really: i was out on the fjord shore shooting the northern lights gliding over the city while John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival) was having a concert on a stadium not far and his great music was playing probably one of the best soundtracks for the images i had over me.

Hope you'll like it and have a lovely weekend!

Hello Horia!
It is a pleasure to find you around. I have popped in after a very long time and I was happy to find one of your amazing photos.
It is really on my wish list to watch an Aurora...
This is a beautiful wide angle, the long exposure worked perfectly.
Best regards, MF.

Buna Horia,
Interesant moment si greu de surprins. Culorile deosebite, prezenta stelelor, a aurorei boreale precum si imaginea ingijit prezentata fac o fotografie de exceptie in general.
In particular aspectele civilizatiei nu prea sunt apreciate in acest site, desi reflexia luminilor in apa dau un farmec aparte, dupa parerea mea si contribuie foarte mult la valoarea fotografiei.
Felicitari! O imagine de 10. Din pacate nu mai am zambareti verzi...

Darn Horia, you were very lucky. I was too late and did not have such luck. This is really an awesome shot especialy since you had light polution from the city but still such a clear view on the aurora.
The reflection adds a nice touch to the entire photo.

I also had hoped so much for it but you are young and agile and can move about.....lucky yo and over city lights it must have been intense. Great light show well displayed!
