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.

Norway 2015 – Flam Waterfall

Flam waterfall

You will have gathered that Norway was last years trip & it was a truly stunning country.  The views at every turn were just amazing.

This particular day we decided to take the famous Flam Railway all the way to the top passing the Kjosfossen Waterfall en route.  The scene was amazing but even better was the fact that the train stops on the way back down for you to actually get out & see it close up.

With the snow melting it made the waterfall even more dramatic & as you can see from this shot you had zero chance of staying dry.  The family took an early shower!!
