The Northern Lights

Having always wanted to visit Norway & see the Northern Lights, we were blessed on this visit.  I’ll be honest & this is the first time that I have ever taken this type of shot & clearly some practice needed & next time, I will definitely have a 1.4 lens to speed up the shots, but I am pleased with what we saw.

Some wonderful memories, thats for sure…

A big tick on the bucket list

I’ve wanted to see the northern lights for a long time & finally achieved the dream late last year.  Blessed with some great weather & clear skies we were treated to what the locals suggested was the best show they had seen for a long time.

My shots didn’t come out the best you will ever see but I have the memories.  My pictures serve as a reminder. 🙂

I’m also getting to grips with Lightroom!!  A recent purchase as Aperture is being updated, I decided it was time for a move.  Big learning curve.  More to follow on this.

London sunrise

Slacking again in my posts, but I have been busy. Apart from work, I have been taking plenty of pictures & I will be sharing again soon. This shot was London at sunrise, taken whilst doing the recent London Nightrider challenge.

Nightrider is a 100km ride through London & the other reason for being a little slack on the posts. Training was definitely necessary. A great challenge & it was completed in style – even if I do say so myself.

More to follow soon & I’ll catch up with everyones else’s posts as well. Take care all.
