Tranquility by CapturingTheNight Tranquility by CapturingTheNight
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: Greg Gibbs. You may not use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.

The southern lights or Aurora Australis dance on the horizon as the setting moon lights up the sandstone cliffs on the left of frame.
The southern lights are exactly the same as the northern lights or Aurora Borealis, but are not as frequently observed. This is because there is very little landmass in the southern hemisphere where the aurora commonly occur

I have just got back from a three week holiday to Tasmania. The main purpose of the trip was to hopefully score a few aurora displays. This was the only one that I managed for the trip. I have a heap of other nightscape and landscape photographs from the trip though, so stay tuned for some more uploads from me in the near future.

Thank you, Greg. Are you connected to the scientific community in any way? May be a way to go to the northern aurora. Some of the societies give grants, etc for this work and documentation. I will do a little homework. Just keep shooting! :star: :heart:

How do your images show up so sharp and noise free? :(

A full frame camera certainly helps with less noise. Getting focus spot on helps with sharpness.

No worries, will do!

Yeah, we get back home last Sunday. Spent four days in Albury with the lads as it was too cold and wet in Adelong to do any prospecting.

The shots from Tassie are stunning! Always a pleasure to see your work :wave:
