Goooood picture of the northern lights

Click on over to Fish Taxi and check out this shot of the northern lights. http://fishtaxi.blogspot.com/2005/11/northern-nights.html

The northern lights are hard to capture on film. Too hard for my point and shoot camera, anyway. I envy people who are able to capture them on film.

Hi Coldfoot,
The aurora is one of the most amazing sights I have ever witnessed. I saw a lovely bright green one in 1990 when I was working on a meteorology field experiment in northern Quebec. I hope to see more someday.

Here is a good gallery of aurora photos.

I think the trick is to use a tripod and a camera than can take long exposures.
