Shooting pictures like this really isn’t easy where I live. Let me tell you why. First of all: thunderstorms are rare here. A handful a year if you are lucky. Secondly: the Nordic summer light makes it impossible to shoot a photo like this between mid May and early August. That’s because it’s light all night. And during September to April there are no thunderstorms due to low temperatures. I had been waiting for a suitable thunderstorm that summer because I wanted to get some lightning photos. And then on 14 August it happened.
When I arrived I had one thunderstorm to the north and another to the west. I hurried to mount my camera on the tripod and set the exposure time to 30 seconds, pressed the shutter and waited in the darkness for a ligtning. After only a few seconds I got this one. It was the very first photo and it’s one of the best from that night. After that I shot and shot, alternately pointing my camera to the north and the west. I got a lot of lightning photos that night. An hour later it was over and I headed home. I felt very lucky indeed!
The complete story comes only with the Deluxe version so you can learn everything about it and be able to tell the story to anyone who sees it on your wall.
WHAT DOES “STANDARD” AND “DELUXE” MEAN?
The STANDARD photos are available in two sizes (choose from the Select menu) and are printed on standard high quality photo paper (matte or glossy depending on what suites the photo best). They are signed on the back side. Standard photos are not numbered and do not come with a Certificate of Authenticity or the Full Story (see the Deluxe photo info below).
The DELUXE photos are available in two sizes (choose from the Select menu) and are printed on High Quality Fine Art Paper. They are signed on the front side and numbered as well as signed on the backside. With the Deluxe photo comes a Certificate of Authenticity which proves that the number is authentic and made by me. A signed and numbered artwork is always an investment. Deluxe photos are delivered in a tube inside a box. They should be opened very carefully to prevent the photo to be damaged.
STANDARD + POSTCARD SET is a 300x200 mm (11.8”x7.8”) photo plus a set of 6 Northern Lights postcards (3 different cards x 2).
All photos in the Nordic Landscape webshop are taken by me.
