Seeing the Aurora Borealis' Reflection on Water Is So Cool

I was going to say my New Year’s resolution (and everyone who’s able) should be to see the Northern Lights in person but I’m not sure seeing them with my own eyes can actually top the electric timelapses and stunning low light photography of them. This one by AD Photography shows the Aurora Borealis from Denmark and the orgy of dancing colors in the sky is just gorgeous. Seeing it bounce off the lake might be even better.

The Danish perspective actually gives another dimension and experience to the northern lights. Since you see them from the edge of the storm, they offer the full spectrum of their colors, from green to purple and blue. They put on a great show as they advance towards you in a magical explosion, and rightfully so, because they actually look like curtains opening and closing on the Baltic scene.

I guess it’s better to let professional photographers wait hours on dark and cloudless nights for the perfect shots than to chase it ourselves, right?

Sure it violates all kinds of eula clauses and end user agreements, but I ripped 300+ jpgs out of this to make a wallpaper slideshow in Rainmeter 4.0 Final for Win10, the photo layout and resolution are perfect. Now trying to work an all encompassing slideshow rmskin for a Server 2016 box.

Beautiful thing.

Thanks for this Casey... awesome.
