Time-Lapse Video of the Aurora Borealis
Posted by Avital Pinnick on March 24, 2011
How many of us get to see the Aurora Borealis, let alone a time-lapse video of it? Norwegian photograher Terje Sorgjerd took these photos over a week, around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia, in temperatures around -25 Celsius. He describes it as “Good fun.” Brrrrr! I didn’t know camera equipment and batteries could function in that cold for that period of time.
Also worth a look are his photos of the volcanic eruption a year ago, taken with — are you sitting down? — a 70mm lens. Some of us would give our right leg to be able to take photos like this, but from a safe distance!
