Aurora timelapse

Aurora timelapse

Last night we had a beautiful aurora show, which lasted for quite a long time. This enabled me to try something I’ve been meaning to try for a long time – a timelapse of the aurora! The video is only about 40 seconds, but covers 1.5 hour in reality ๐Ÿ™‚

At some point the aurora became really weak, and Paul was keen to go home. I told him, “nope, I would like a grand finale to my video!”. I hadn’t finished my sentence when the aurora was suddenly very bright and dancing all over the sky… so magical! I often try to make the aurora come out, but this was the first time I succeeded ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Thanks! The aurora has been really active for the last 3 days, but I was only able to go out last night. Pity you have clouds ๐Ÿ™ I think this season is going to be great though, so there will be more opportunities! Enjoy your Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

    How I wanna go there:-)
    Thanks for sharing beautiful video.

  2. Yes, I saw it too. It is really beautiful!
    But this movie is much better than my pictures.

    1. Hi, glad you got to see it too, it was a wonderful show! I love taking pictures of the aurora, but I always find that they can never really show how it moves around, that’s why I wanted to try this… it’s easy to do actually!

  3. So beautiful and wonderfully captured! How I envy you and anyone else lucky enough to see this spectacular display of nature’s awe. I especially love from 0:27 – 0:33.

    1. Thanks Ben! Yep that part was definitely the best! I *almost* packed my camera away just before that started, so glad I didn’t! It was really spectacular ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. nice!!!
    did you also see the fireworks? that was quite cool, aurora in the sky complemented by fireworks from the town centre….

    1. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t see or hear any fireworks, was that on Saturday evening? We were at Telegrafbukta so perhaps too far away. Sounds like a nice combination though ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Hallo Hanneke,
    Wat een geweldig mooie opname, en ook de muziek erbij is mooi gekozen!
    Groetjes, Els.

    1. Dankje ๐Ÿ™‚ De muziek is van Grieg, vond het wel mooi om een Noorse componist te kiezen! Groetjes, Hanneke

  6. BRAVO…BRAVO!!! ENCORE! WOW!!! What a show! Thank you for letting me see something I will never see live. I wish I could slow it down to real time to compare how it really happens. Of course seeing it at this speed with such TERRIFICLY GLORIOUS music is just more that I could have ever imagined. Thank you Thank you. Now you have spring and winter in time lapse, That’s just a begininning of your filming talents. More later. Did you hear it snowed in Las Vegas again? What’s with your friend’s big day in the NW USA?

    1. Thanks Martha!! Glad you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ™‚ I used music from Grieg, thought it was fitting to use a Norwegian composer.

      You had snow?! Wow!

      We haven’t planned anything for our trip to the USA yet, but it’s in early August so I guess it will be HOT in your area… will send you some more info by email.

  7. Breathtaking video! You lucky lady! :O)

    Hope i can send you a message!
    The best wishes for your last birthday and keep up the marvelous work!

    Greetings, Gerard.

  8. Nice work Hanneke,

    I tried a time-lapse myself that night and I hope to be able to post it soon on my web..
