What better way to test out your new Sony A7’s low light abilities than with the stunning scene Northern lights photographer, Harald Albrigtsen, was lucky enough to come across. While taking his new camera out for a test drive on Kvaløya, in Northern Norway, Albrigtsen happened across the unusual sight–and the best part, the whales came back the following night giving the photographer two days capture this footage.
Sometimes the cosmic forces of the universe just align to give you the opportunity to produce some really really unique photographs.
There is no other way to explain how I was able to capture these photographs of the Perseids Meteor Shower with the Milky Way and the Northern Lights in a single frame.
The unlikely chain of events goes something like this…
Tiina Törmänen, a Finnish landscape photographer, has travelled the vast wilderness of Arctic Lapland creating an awe-inspiring series of self portraits.
Titled “Wanderer”, the series is Tiina’s attempt to show how tiny we humans are in this world we live in and the universe around it.
The isolated frozen landscapes and the stunning skies, showing the magnificent northern lights and Milky Way, fulfill her goal in the most beautiful way.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured photos and video of the first super-powerful solar flare of 2015.
The X-class solar flare was directed at Earth, and while the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from the harmful radiation, it caused a strong radio blackout. More importantly for us photographers, though, such massive radiation bursts may lead to spectacular displays of the Northern Lights.
