Sometimes the northern lights is one or more thic green and pink stripes splitting up the sky above and brightening up the trees and landscape around while violently moving around, other times it’s a green blanket covering the whole sky, other times it shows up as small flares popping up in seemingly random places among the stars and sometimes it just looks like a vaguely green cloud.
Most of the photos of the northern lights is captured using long exposure time together with other settings affecting the amount of light the camera lens is exposed to.
