Moonlit night (PiP)

Moonlit night (PiP) 

TSC: look back through your photographs and pick your favourite photo you took this year. Not necessarily your best composed/exposed/technically perfect, though it may be so, but the one that means most to you, and tell us why.

A difficult choice as I don't have one single favourite photo.
This is a previously unpublished one from a winter journey on one of the older Hurtigruten ships. I love watching the night sky while the boat sails along the coast. There are few people outside and the ones that are appreciate the peaceful mood while above our heads the night shift on the bridge are at work. Once you've put up the tripod you keep your eyes glued to the sky, blindly hit the shutter every now and then and stay out until your toes are frozen;-)

In the PiP one from the following night, finally some northern lights! Strong wind and the usual Barents Sea swell made photos more miss than hit and the stars turned into stripes or zigzags (this is the best of a bad lot, not fit for looking at in large size).

The 'blind hitting of the shutter' seems to have worked so well. I must try that technique sometime, Gudrun. ;-)

Wow. In fact, this picture is so WOW that my husband saw the thumbnail of your picture on Explore and said, "Hey, can I see that picture?" Of course! I got to your page and enlarged the image against black and together, Steve and I just stared in awe. IN AWE. What a picture. What a mood. What wonder. Totally gobsmacking awesome! Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed your main image, as well as your stunning northern lights picture. INCREDIBLE!! Way to go...*high five*

Happy holidays!

Ein wundervolles romantisches Foto, Gudrun! Ich war jedoch ganz verblüfft, den Mond auf deinem Bild zu sehen, wo ich eigentlich in Gedanken bei der Mitternachtssonne war. Auf das Aufnahmedatum habe ich natürlich erst hinterher geschaut. ;-) Ein Foto vom Mond in dieser nördlichen Landschaft ist dagegen mal etwas ganz besonderes für mich. Auch die Sterne kommen in der noch nicht so "lichtverschmutzten" Landschaft sehr gut zur Geltung.

Das PIP vom märchenhaften Nordlicht ist besonders spektakulär und fantastisch anzusehen. So etwas habe ich live noch nicht gesehen. Das muß ein unvergeßliches Erlebnis sein, denn das Licht ist ja zudem noch in ständiger Bewegung.
18 months ago.
Gudrun club has replied to Stevia club
Herzlichen Dank, Stevia! Die Mitternachtssonne habe ich noch nicht gesehen, weil ich immer im Winter dort oben unterwegs war, natürlich in der Hoffnung auf Nordlichter:-) Die bewegen sich durchaus nicht immer, manchmal hat man nur einen schwachen Bogen am Horizont stehen, an dem sich nichts tut. Aber bei starker Aktivität wandern sie über den ganzen Himmel, sodass es kein Objektiv gibt, das wiit genug ist, alles einzufangen.
