I have dreamt of getting a photo of summer auroras. Last Friday this decade old dream came true.

Focus stack, 18 photos combined.

Location southwest Finland

Great idea and execution. I hadn't considered stacking flowers like this with a night sky shot, especially one of aurora. Congrats on a dream come true.

That is really a pretty composition and has nice depth. Exciting and peaceful at the same time

Wow! You have created something unique from among the mass of aurora photos worldwide. Well done! Such an intriguing and feel-good vibe, definitely earns my vote 👍🏼

Thanks everyone!

This photo has eluded me for over a decade. I have wanted to take a photo where auroras and summer meet. But It's very difficult, because when summer comes, dark skies vanish. So, the window is approx. two weeks to get this kind of photo.

Then again, its not possible every year. The auroras have to spread to the southern sky, because northern side is too bright. So, the actual window for a photo like this is maybe a couple of times in a decade, only during the strongest geomagnetic storms.

Thank you!

FYI, here's a bigger file. The original photo is approx. 5000 7700px, so its easy to make a very large print out of this one.

Thank you.

I have a couple more stacks waiting for processing.
Before this moment, there was a bright red /pink arc close to the horizon. That pink was clearly visible to the naked eye. Seeing red color in auroras is very unusual.
