About three weeks ago me and the dog spent 5 cold hours on a hilltop enjoying the beautiful northern lights that danced across the sky.
Well, I was enjoying the show.
The dog found the whole thing tedious, "Why are we just standing here with the boring camera and not running around having fun?"
The evening resulted in about 700 pictures, some of which I put together into a short timelapse. Sadly I moved the camera a few times, so I only had about 170 pictures that could be put together. But at least I'm starting to figure this timelapse thing out.
One thing I could not figure out, was the best way of converting the file from MP4 to avi format. So if any of you out there can recommend a safe program for this, it would be much appreciated.
My phone does not want to accept the MP4-file, so I figured I'd share Lady Aurora's dance with you here. Do note that the northern lights did not move this quickly. If you slow the video down to 1/2 speed, it gives you a better idea of how it is to see this natural beauty in real life :)
And as always, remember to follow me on Instagram (@i_couldlivehere) to see all my pictures. I normally post every other day.

The northern lights, polar lights or aurora borealis, is a beautiful natural light, and getting to see it dance above your head is a magical and surreal experience.
I share quite a few of my northern light photos on my Instagram feed, and sometimes people ask how to take pictures of this beautiful natural phenom.
So I figured I'd take you along on one of my typical nights of northern light photography. This is pretty much what I do, step-by-step:

It has been far too long since I last made an update to this site. I'll try to keep this post nice and short, and I promise to update the page more frequently from now on.
I am much better at updating my Instagram account (@I_couldlivehere), so make sure you follow me there if you're interested in seeing pictures of the northern lights, the starry skies and some beautiful sunsets. And of the dog, of course.
Last time you heard from me, I had just started making my bucket list, and was hoping to summit Mount Kilimanjaro in September or early October this year. Those plans were put aside when I suddenly came across the perfect apartment. I decided to postpone all travel plans, and buy my dream home instead.
