    We spent almost a week in Northern Norway and a couple of days in Northern Finland last February. We went there to shoot Aurora Borealis and did manage to take a few pics / time lapse videos of them. Honestly, the weather could have been better though since it was too cloudy and snowy most nights.

    And what was pretty ironic is that while we were in Lapland hunting for the Northern Lights, our home province had quite a few visible Northern Lights shows as well. And by looking at some photos I saw I think the show was even better in Southern Finland so our timing could have indeed been better... :biggrin:

    Here's the best photos from that trip (both E-M5 and GM1 used):

    Nice one. Motion seems to be an excellent way of capturing the essence of an aurora, if not in real time video (requires super high ISO) then time lapse as you've done here.
