Amazing captures Claire....from looking at your photos, I can't believe this was your first attempt at photographing them! They are stunning!!! This is definitely something I would LOVE to see someday! Thank you so much for sharing....gorgeous!
@ClaireBall replied: Aw thank you Pamela, as the night went on my images got better and I was very pleased with these especially since the aurora has really peaked at this stage :)

I have been away as well Claire... so it is great to see you back. Two absolute beauties and you accomplished what you wanted in night photography. So well done.
@ClaireBall replied: Thanks Jenny, looking forward to catching up on your shots, still getting to grips with night photography but not bad for a proper attempt, sort of went out and just adjusted settings as I went along but will definitely continue to improve and learn more techniques to make them better :)

WOW and AMAZING Claire, what an opportunity for you and what a sight to see! You took wonderful opportunity of a rare happening, I am envious! I'd read about the storm in the paper but didn't get a chance to see anything. I think you have to be pretty far north to see it. Again, terrific photo!
@ClaireBall replied: Thanks Jim, I have to admit it was amazing and I am still sort of buzzing from seeing it

Awesome photography!
@ClaireBall replied: Thanks Brian, I have been looking through several aurora captures on facebook and there are some stunning ones from NZ :) I'll have to add the Aurora Australis to my bucket list, to see it from north and south would be deadly :)

It has been some time since I last posted or came on 72dpi simply due to Uni commitments (nearing the end...) but my friend and I went out last night with the largest geomagnetic storm in the solar cycle in progress and saw the Aurora in three different locations over Galway county...absolutely amazing!

This is taken over Killary Fjord, Connemara, Galway. First time seeing the Aurora and attempting proper night photography, Hope you like them.

I do hope all my buddies on here are well and I have some major catching up to do with your images!!
