One More Aurora Shot…What It’s All About

I got my medium format photos back today from last weeken’d shoot.
These are 2-1/4" square negatives, 4 times larger than 35mm film.
At about 10 times the resolution of 10 megapixel digital, these are suitable for very large pictures.
This is what I am shooting for on these photo excursions.
This one is a very unusual "pillow" northern light pattern.
Note the tiny hills at the skyline, these are big imposing mountains when you are out there.
The scale is really indescribable…what it’s all about

    What an incredible sky.  Glad you pointed out that those \’hills\’ are actually mountains.  It puts the magnitude of it into perspective.  Glad you did some in the medium format.  It really shows how far digital has to go to match the quality of the really \’professional\’ equipment.  Hugs from me. 🙂

    Hi, Steve!
    Great photo! It\’s been a long time now, since I saw the northern lights flaming like that (moved south six years ago…). But I have two beautiful paintings that I got on my wall last week:

    I bet these are superb prints.  An extremely nice poster size shot in a flat black fram and a very nice egg shell mat.  Amazing subjects you have up there for photography.  I just have to get up to Alaska.
