''Every picture has a story. The best pictures are often made from a challenging one!''
Capturing the aurora demands patience, skills and dedication. However, the unique aurora pictures are often taken when you expect it the least, so you had better be ready in the field with your camera in place when it happens! Get prepared for epic aurorae!
The aurora essentially works in a series of charging-unloading events called substorms. The quick release of charged particles during the unloading phase, e.g. the substorm expansion gives incredible shapes and colors that are very hard to catch on camera. Here are the best I have collected over the year.
