I hope this is in the right section of the site, technically a very special event for me

A very special event indeed.

Lovely images, shame they were not from Essex so I could see them too.

One of my things to do. :) 

Well done.

Where were these taken? It's a beautiful scene.

We both make the big 50 this year and are looking for something special to do.

Not sure if it was Iceland but I was taken there by my lovely OH some years ago for my 40th and got a stunning display on my b'day night. Highly recommended!

Hey all.   Absolutely beautiful up here in ivalo (Finnish Lapland).   I'm still here actually.   Thanks for the comments.  Literally my first proper Astro shots I'm pleased with.   No lights since these sadly but lots of Star shots. I'll pop a couple up in a few mins.   

Mostly shot at f2.8 / 16mm ultra wide. ISO 320 (yes I know it's low but it works for me) 14-25 second shots.

6176687888_IMG_0362.JPGIncidentally, I'm aware of certain under / over exposure elements across the board.  I am still here so am unable to post process ........ I'm not even sure I want too.  I'm still a beginner and I feel the images deserve to be left well alone 😀

 

Once I improve I can criticise myself from these

Wow! Very nice pictures you got there. I have always wanted to see the northern lights, and I sure do have a lot of years left to experience it.
