I've just returned from a week long landscape and aurora workshop run by Antony Spencer in the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway. On our second night we were treated to a sky filling display, rising up from behind the mountains near the beach.

Cheers all for your comments and user awards, it really is an amazing landscape and with the bonus of the chance of auroras. We were lucky and had 3 nights with clear enough skies and auroral activity.

Cheers niknut and Ed and Pete of course - I'm well chuffed to get an EC for my first upload from the trip! As I said before it really is a great landscape to explore with the bonus of nature's own light show!

Great capture Ant, the sky is a good enough shot on it's own but you've also a pleasing landscape shot too.

Great photo, but intrigued by the sharpness of the ripples in the water with a 15 second exposure. Was flash used to freeze the foreground ripples?

Thanks Dave, Ed, Caleb, Tom and Pam. Tom - The ripples are in the wet sand and so were still, just reflecting the light from above.
