"Norwegian Coast"

This is a shot from last night (sept.1st) on the outskirts of Tromsø, northern Norway.

The mountain back right in the frame is the famous "Håja", which was also the inspiration for the architect designing the arctic cathedral in Tromsø. "Håja" is north from my shooting point.

West, in the centre of the frame, facing Greenland, you see the fishing-village on the islands of "Sommarøy", with the connecting bridge.

At left, south, you see the northern parts of "Senja", the second biggest island in Norway.

So you can clearly see the auroras are stretching from west to east in the frame.

Autumn equinox is normally a very active period for the auroras. And it is nice to be able to use both the colors from the sun in the horizon and the auroras, to add to the frame!

The image is a small panorama of 3 images stiched in post.

You can also see mee operating another of my cameras. I had to run like a madman to get me in the frame and then do the other exposures.

Hope you like the shot, feel free to fave & share!
