Wasn´t happy about the car coming in at first but with the shape of the aurora it kind made up for a cool shot in the end. :)
Hope you like it.

And if you don´t get the "ominous" part, think Pac-Man ;)

D800, f/2.8, Iso 1600, 15 seconds.
Sørkjosen, troms county, northern norway.

This picture takes me back to the winter nights I love so much with a sense of magic. There is no such beauty as the northern lights.

Most of this kind of photos are all about colors and elusive ethereal shapes. Here, the colors follow the classical harmonious pattern of violet and bluish green, and there is a subtle gradient in their hues that pleasantly enrich the color scheme.
The sky is divided in two almost equal halves by the two different colors which gives me the feeling of opposing cosmic forces - as if you can see their silent battle, hinted by the rays of light and the pattern of the stars. This, along with the numerous stars, can completely justify the seemingly off composition, in which the land is hardly visible. Finally, the bright light in the lower corner - although undesired by the author - also melds in the composition since it aligns with the brightest trail of stars in the sky.

From the technical point of view, there is little I can add. Most of the picture is taken up by pure colors leaving little space for technical issues, as long as the exposure is correct. The sky is fairly clear - there is some visible noise, but no color distortions, which leaves me with a good impression.

It's worth noting that the earth is subtly divided by the same colors as the sky. This creates unison in the picture. And the sky-centered composition could conceal an allusion - how tiny and insignificant is our planet before the power of the Universe.

Nok eit flott bilete av nordlyet.
Dette bilete har noko som det andre ikkje har, og omvent.

Du fanger flotte farger, og flotte stemninger med dette bilete. Lyset frå bilen hjelper med å trekka augo til meir av bilete enn berre nordlyset og stjerne himmelen. Lyset frå bilen gjer noko ekstra til bilete.

Lanskapet er fanga på ein flott måte, og fjella hjelper stemninga i bilete.
Det einaste eg ikkje er stor fan av i dette er skiltet langs vegen. Men det er mykje bry om ein tar med seg vinkel slipar kvar gong ein skal ta bilete som dette, så det er eit lite minus men ikkje meir enn det.

Kjempe flott arbeid, håper på å sjå fleire bilete frå deg snart.

Oh, this is beautiful! I went to Iceland and Greenland this year, but neither place had such intense, lovely lights. I hope someday I'll be able to go further north and see these for myself.

If you go further than 68degrees north the odds increase drasticly for seeing amazing aurora displays. :)

You know, with the car coming in, it kind of accentuates the aurora even more than before! The lights shining across the night sky like it was part of the night itself... Maybe it was accidental on their part, but it sure makes for a better shot! :iconohmyplz:

Vehicles aside, another incredible aurora you have captured here and certainly one of the most powerful I've seen on your page. Excellent capture, hope to see more. Take care! =)
