Well the my favourite camera, a Nikon D90, that I have been holding together with a wing and a prayer and some gaffer tape for the last couple of months finally gave it up altogether – on the tour to see the Northern Lights. And its official – I’m not good with anything else. Fortunately I did have a back up camera with me and managed to get some shots with that – nothing to write home about but photos anyway.
So the Northern Lights – lots of standing around waiting for a clear sky as that is when you can see them with the naked eye. But if you think you can see what could be a showing take the photo anyway – the camera picks up different light to the eye. We did see one spectacular showing. The lights danced and spun everywhere. Well worth the wait.
Also it was freezing!
