Picolax – “Holy crap on a cracker”, quite literally.
Anywho, hugging my hot water bottle, downloading games for my iPod to keep my occupied tonight, I thought I would bore you with more photos from two nights ago, when the Aurora Borealis put on probably one of its best displays.
Now these photos are a fairly accurate non-tweaked version of what you actually see. I am not a huge fan of photoshop or jazzing things up to look incredible, apart from the odd use of the sharpen tool. The Northern Lights are fabulous, don’t get me wrong, but perhaps not as vibrantly sensational that some would lead you to believe.
Here are two examples of the identical pics with a bit of “enhancement”. They just don’t look like that. I’m sorry but they don’t, well not outside my back door anyway.
Anywho, the Aurora is out of this world and very special. Gazing up to the stars watching this sky-show is like standing in a silent cathedral all by yourself. It puts the world into perspective.
Personally, I would also like a soundtrack to go with them too – some Elgar, perhaps!
