Senja – 31th Oktober 2016

I just have to add 2 photos from yesterday. Later in the evening, the northern light really came out nicely. The situation was far from ideal for photography, as the ship was moving on the outer side of Senja, where there will always be some swell. Moderate last night, but any movement is deadly for quality shots of northern lights. So I was happy to have a good prime lense (24 mm f1.4) and a full frame camera, pulling the ISO value up to a rather extreme 12800. Well, I guess that’s what you have such a camera for, isn’t it? So you can get something even with a shutter speed of 1/10 of a second, the slowest that this kind of movement could tolerate, more or less.

So this is what I got. As mentioned, no quality pix, but … nice, or not 🙂
