#7 ("ten hours exposure", look the moon)

Too much photos? Or should I enter more photos yet?

Lots of thanks for watching!

Congrats on catching these. #4 with the single pine and the moon and Jupiter is breathtaking. This one should be a wall hanger. Too much cloud here on the weekend to see it. Supposed to be another possibility of more aurora on the 19th-20th so might be sparking up tonight as well.

I agree about image #4. The similar diagonal slant of the light and of the tree makes the composition work as does the portrait view.

Huge Aurora borealis
I think that your first image is without question the best Aurora image I've ever seen, wow, stunning, words fail me.

A few nights back, you could see the lights here over the Loch, but just tame by your standards.

I visited your gallery - the outdoor photography is stunning! Gorgeous color, composition, some are like impressions, what did you do to get those? How long have you been taking pictures?

Incredible photos. I agree that #4 is the best. I also like how #1 conveys the intensity of the aurora.

We had them but we also had clouds and the big displays were in our daytime. Glad you got 'em. Nice shooting.
