You indeed are very fortunate to live in a country in which this most fantastic play of cosmic light takes place every year.
Very good image with the kind of colours expected in this type of a phenomenon.

Hi Christian, this one is really nice, like the nature would know, that the "S" curve is so nice. Wish to see it too. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Michael

A wonderful S shape in the sky... perhaps standing for Sun? :D
A lovely shot with the city lights and the sky competing for attention.
Brilliant composition, and could one dare say anything about the amazing colors?

Quel spectacle, Christian, tu as eu la chance de prendre en photo ! Des couleurs et un graphisme dûs à la nature magnifiques c'est à la limite du spectacle de magie.
tcht (7565) 2006-07-29 4:56
Hi again Chrstian,
This is one of the most spectacular natural wonders! I'd love to go north and see such things if I hv a chance. So beautiful.
And you've managed the technical quality well, excellent sharpness all the way.
gramma (3519) 2006-07-30 7:02
I don't know what is the difficult to take a shot like this but it's very spectacular !
Thank you for this sharing.
branley (3681) 2006-07-31 5:10
There are no words to describe the colours you have here. We see the northern lights in the Western Isles but nowhere as spectacular as this. Very well captured, a magnificent shot.
sebinho342 (19317) 2006-08-05 7:07
Hi Christian, my dream is to see that once in my life ... this is really marvelous, but take care, it's caused by astral particuls and can be dangerous on human ;)
the result is amazing
I discover your gallery and it's full of good tastes, excellent colors, your 24 pictures are excellent
sabine04 (429) 2006-08-13 5:20

Great scoop and realization!

What an amazing spectacle and what a superb subject for photgraphy too. This is a really fascinating image, with the wisp of light over the city lights. Really nicely done.
