Aurora off Berlevåg
Taken from Hurtigruten ship MS Vesterålen just off Berlevåg. In the circumstances -up to 8 Beaufort, we didn't manage to get into the harbour- this was the best I could come up with. One deck lower the camera got wet with sea spray.
A brief moment of really strong activity at 10 p.m. in the Barents sea just off Berlevåg
Aurora over Silda
Banging doors and trampling feet woke me up at 1 a.m. so I decided to investigate, taking my camera and tripod with me. I was glad I did as the official aurora announcement only came after the best was over and we few hardy photographers were able to shoot for a while without having our photos totally ruined by camera flash and bright mobile displays.

A brief break in the clouds afforded a view of the aurora over Skjervøy. When MS Polarlys left harbour it started snowing again... The star constellations explained by Ko: www.ipernity.com/doc/1072793/40610094
A break in the clouds
This was what I had been looking for in my previous photo, 2 hours later the break in the clouds was there:-) Danach hatte ich schon auf dem vorherigen Foto Ausschau gehalten, 2 Stunden später war's so weit:-)
Aurora over Ringvassøya (PiP)
7.52 p.m.- a night of Aurora watching started promising with a low arc and some more green behind the clouds. The idea was to have the northern lights reflected in the water and ice - it was not to be. See PiP!
