Late March this year my new outside exhibition premiered in Badhusparken Östersund Sweden. It ran for a week and features 8 photos each with a size of 2,4 x 2,4 meters. This was a really fun exhibition to be able to show both the Sun and the Moon bigger than probably most of us ever see them.
I arrived to the islands yesterday afternoon and I instantly fell in love with this place. The scenery here is just out of this world. I'm having a hard time taking in all this beauty and to think that on top of all this, there will be a total solar eclipse is just to good to be true.
Last week I was out to shoot the moon rise above the mountains, the day after full moon, so the moon was 99% lit at the time. When I got back home and looked through my photos I found that in one of the photos I found some green and blue flashes. I've never seen them above the moon before, only above the Sun. Here's a image sequence I took of green and blue flashes from the Sun - http://blogg.astrofotografen.se/2012/06/gron-blixt.html
While preparing my upcoming exhibition (March 28 here in Östersund, Sweden) I was going through some old photos and found this all sky photo of the beautiful aurora that was visible on March 17 in 2013. While looking at it I realized it actually looks like a big Heron flying in the sky.
I also did a transformed version of the image and then it looks like the Heron is sitting down, looking at the moon and planet Jupiter.
Here you can watch a time lapse movie from that awesome night, a night I remember very well.
