Still Searching For Them Northern Lights!

Happy Friday!

So, you’ll know by all the posts from my blog in the past week I was in Reykjavik recently ๐Ÿ˜› One of the main reasons for the trip was to go and see the Northern Lights, however it never happened because the weather was not good enough, and we wouldn’t have been able to see them. Quite ironically, last week it was the perfect time of the year to see them, and you could see them from our country! ๐Ÿ˜› Since I live in the North of England, some people did get to see them in some places, so last Friday we decided to go somewhere dark and try our luck.

Once again we saw nothing! ๐Ÿ™ But it was quite a laugh and something different to do. It was also a good chance for me to actually try my hand at some night photography. I have never done it before, and bought my Tokina lens for situations like this. I was actually quite surprised at how the pictures turned out, I think they are pretty decent for a first attempt. I got some shots of the moon and stars, the moon was quite orangey and almost looks like a sun set. I was doing long exposures, and even got in on one of my shots to see how it would turn out; Of course it’s not sharp because of the slight movements of myself, but it’s not too bad ๐Ÿ˜›

It does go to show how much light pollution there is in Newcastle. I was actually blown away by how many stars you can see out there in the middle of nowhere…I remember seeing them as a kid years ago, we must somehow have a lot more light pollution in the city these days.
