Stunning Astrophoto: The Aurora and the Fjord

27 Jan , 2014 by

As compensation for the long, dark, cold winters near the Arctic Circle, residents sometimes get views like this. “We had some auroras on January 23rd, but with no movement,” said astrophotographer Frank Olsen from Blokken, Norway. “The small fishing boat was moored just off the beach, and surrounded by green lights, it was pretty nice.”

This is not a stacked photo, but a 13 second exposure. “Quite tricky to get the boat to lay still for 13 seconds!” Frank said.

You can see more of Frank’s beautiful imagery of aurora, the night sky and more at his Flickr page, his website (he has prints for sale), at G+, or his Facebook page.
