Fore­ground in­ter­est

When it comes to shoot­ing the aurora many things are be­yond your con­trol – not least whether it ac­tu­ally ap­pears. How­ever, one thing you can con­trol is your com­po­si­tion. On our trip to the Lo­foten Is­lands we ear­marked likely lo­ca­tions, like beaches and lakes, that had a clear view north­wards. Then, af­ter dark, we drove around these spots (on a shoot­ing trip like this, a car be­comes your home from home). The dis­play is beau­ti­ful, but, like a glo­ri­ous sun­set, needs con­text. Framing moun­tains, trees or build­ings in the fore­ground pro­vides this con­text.
