Green World again
Aurora Borealis is an amazing phenomenon. Capture it and bring the audience is technically
not easy. Still, I tried it in a series of panoramic images (vertical or square format)
compiled together from partial averaged photos, different exposures and different planes
of focus. Three photos were taken on the Norwegian Lofoten, then two in Iceland.
