Aurora Borealis: Weird Phenomenon, Awesome Photos.

The Aurora Borealis (Also known as “The Northern Lights”) is a light glow of the upper atmosphere caused by energetic particles that enter the atmosphere. There are 2 main colors associated with the glow: Green and Red, but because of limits of the human eye, we cant always see the red aurora. In order to see the aurora, the sky must be clear and dark, and to get it on film (or sensor) you need to shoot long exposure (between 10-30 seconds, depends how bright the Aurora is).

It’s about making art out of architecture. [more]

Its super cheap, creative and can give your photos the X-Factor.
