Photographing the aurora is a real challenge. You've got almost no time for composition as it arrives in a random place and then swirls around as it sees fit. You just end up frantically running around, digging your tripod into the ground, firing the shutter and then repeating the process as the aurora has then moved somewhere else.Occasionally it decides to play ball and hover over some scenery.www.simonbyrnephotography.com
