So beautiful!
It's so full of color and vibrant light it's also most like something I would put together in some of my photo art artificially.

Thank you!



Some things are just better done naturally IMO.

Nature gives us color combos that we just can't duplicate.

Peace

Born in Northern Manitoba, I have seen them many times in my life and in fact when I was young it was almost a nightly occurrence. Didn't think much of it.

But now I miss them.

Peace

Pretty pics. Looks like something Peter Lik would take. I wouldn't be standing there though. If that thing decides to start coughing up asteroids that would be the last place on earth youre gonna want to be.

How could you NOT stand there?


At that point in time it would be the only place in the World to be standing.

If it's time to go, what a show!

Peace

Amazing photos, wish I was there.

Here are the camera details if anyone is interested...

Camera Make: Canon
Camera Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
F-stop: f/16
Exposure time: 2.5 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-50
Exposure bias: 0 step
Focal length: 17mm
Flash mode: No flash, compulsory



F16 makes the details sharp, all around.
2.5 sec exposure time = long exposure, therefore more saturation of color.
17mm focal length lens = almost panoramic view. (Would not work well if there were not so many colors at play).

The entire rainbow of light is included here, harmoniously distributed within the frame.
That's why these pictures are so pleasing.
White * Purple * Blue * Turquoise * Green * Yellow * Orange * Red * Magenta * Black.

Whether it's Cannon, Nikon or other, it doesn't matter; What the photographer envisions is what counts.

These are beautiful photos, thank you for sharing. They are now a background for at least one of the computer's in the house.
Beautiful, just beautiful. I love how the warm and the cold work against the other in this one.

I have to admit it... the 5th pic down just invokes pure jealousy.


Wow, that would be a sight to see and feel... thanks for sharing!

Beautiful! Wish I had been there. Have only seen the Aurora Borealis vaguely a few times but it's still one of my favorite sights. Now waterfalls and or an active, waves crashing, ocean with the Auroa in the sky may come close.

ooh 5D MK II thats my next one very nice body

50 ISO is the reason there is such little noise good call.

17mm lens is a nice choice too although it would have gone for a 50mm fixed lens.

awesome pics.

Those are really beautiful pictures. Lucky man.


It's pretty cool how the Borealis just engulfed the volcano eruption.
