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…

Loving water

Just love water, there is something about capturing a moment & thinking about the journey it will travel.

I stayed at this spot in  a village in Dartmoor (name completely escapes me) for ages playing with various settings.  Not sure I actually achieved what I had set out to do that day, but it was certainly a good relaxing way to spend some time thinking about travel.

The kids are growing up & starting their own lives now, time for us to plan ahead & think about places we would like to visit now we have the flexibility.

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.
