Aurora

I’ve chosen this small set of aurora pictures  to show just how varied the northern lights can be. The first two pictures were both taken on the island of Kvaløya, which is just outside Tromsø, in arctic Norway. They were taken a year apart but both were on nights when the moon was full. That means you can capture foreground details, fjords and mountains as well as the lights themselves. In the third and fourth pictures conditions were quite different. Stångtjärn is in Dalarna, Sweden, and south of the Arctic Circle. The lights were weaker and lower on the horizon, also there was no moon. The last picture was taken in central Turku, Finland, on a night with a spectacular display of the lights. The shot is taken looking directly upwards at the rays of light streaming down.

WESSA Natural Heritage Photo Competition Winner

The First Prize for the Professional Category of the WESSA Natural Heritage Photo Competition 2018 is two nights at the luxurious Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. So I was delighted to get the news that my photograph ‘Oldenburgia’ had won. It was a pity that I couldn’t be at the prize giving but we were travelling back to South Africa from Sweden – I got the news via social media whilst waiting for my luggage at Port Elizabeth airport! I’m really looking forward to taking all of my photo equipment along to Kwandwe. There’s the big five to photograph, stunning Eastern Cape scenery and, If I’m lucky, I’ll get a clear night for some shots of the Milky Way and star trails.

The winning picture showcases one of the big Oldenburgia trees at the top of the zigzags on the Oldenburgia Trail where it climbs up out of Featherstone Kloof, south of Grahamstown. I took the picture using a very wide angle lens on my Olympus OMD E-M5MarkII – it was set at 7mm focal length – which is what pulls the clouds down into the frame. It’s a 1/1250 second exposure at F4, ISO was 200. I did a little editing in LightRoom.
