Collision In The Thermosphere by Trichardsen Collision In The Thermosphere by Trichardsen
This was an old tree but has been cut and made in to a sign for a diner that resides ontop of Kvænangsfjellet, it only is open during the summer because of the bad weather during winter.
I have not lightpainted the tree, it is a car coming in from a distance that lights it up.

Captured in Kvænangen, Northern Norway.

Shot with nikon D800, 14-24mm.

Your photos of the Aurora Borealis NEVER fail to amaze me. This one in particular has earned it's spot in my Top 3 of your photos.

Firstly, the stars and the lights itself are so clear and beautiful. This photo captures the brilliance of the setting, almost like seeing it for real. The sky beyond the lights is beautiful, and that cluster of stars to the right, awesome! Really looking at this photo makes me feel so microscopic compared to the universe beyond, which you've captured beautifully.
I also love how the dead tree is surrounded by such beauty, like when something dies something beautiful can take its place.

One of my favorite things about this photo is how the water is the color of the lights. It looks amazing how well lit it is and how you can distinguish it from the little dark islands.

Fantastic job and as always I'm looking forward to seeing more from you! The lights are my favorite natural phenomenon to study and I long for the day when I can observe it myself. For now, I'll just be looking at your wonderful photographs, the closest I can get to the real thing. :D

Here it is: the only thing I would advice you to improve is the exposure of the foreground (the tree, grass and soil).
I know by self experience it is always difficult to do long night exposures and for many times every minimum mistake can lead hours of effort in to scrap. It is a very nice shot indeed, and a subject that is available for a few.
Also, many will disagree with me, but still with the colors you have in this sky, harmonic colors across the frame would fit it better than black.
This could be achieved with multiple exposure stacking. Also, there is Lance Keimig´s Night Photography book, that will better (infinitely better) than me illustrate what I am saying.
Thanks for the picture!

Just look at the stars, they're like glitter in a laser show, only much more beautiful ♡ ☆ ♡

The way the tree is illuminated just adds another element. I love this shot.
