I think I got the shape obsession from drawing, perhaps that is my niche, dont know. :)

Just a little perspective on the power of this one, this is a M 1.7 flare or Cme ( coronal mass ejection ).

a B1 is a pretty weak aurora, a C1 is 10 times as powerful as a B1, and a M1 is 10 times as powerful as that again.

The strongest flare ever measured was in 2003 where they measured a X45 flare which is about 50 times as powerful as you see here, but that was not earth directed.

Also this one of the few deviations available for download, so if you want a, well kinda small background, you are certainly welcome to use this. :)

Shot with nikon d800, 14-24 f/2.8 @ 14mm, 2.8, iso 1600, 4 seconds.
Post processing: Contrast +32, shadows -10, clarity +38, darks -12.
Temp reduced from 4500 to 4250.
Niks software detail extractor and Unsharp mask ( 85, 1.0 pix radius )

I get emotional looking at your photos.  They are really too beautiful for words! :love:

Thank you kindly. :bow:

Please forgive the message, but it's kind of hard not to be awe-struck when confronted with an image as mesmerising as this.


I understand that our scientific language will describe this as solar wind consisting of photons that escaped the colossal gravitational mass of the sun.

They travel at the speed of light across millions of miles of space and by accident they are witnessed passing through the earths magnetic field over the north polar region. Photons - Light - Energy - Mass.


I'm afraid that words cannot describe the beauty of the colours and their distributions that you have captured with your photographic skills that nature has created here. If I could paint just one picture in my lifetime that was as good as this image then I would die a very happy man.


Cheers for doing what you do. :)
