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.
