A Aurora Boreal, também conhecida como Northern Lights, é um dos fenômenos naturais que mais atrai turistas e fotógrafos do mundo todo.
Não é difícil saber o porquê:
Utakleiv Beach, Norway… ______________________________________ Where better to see the northern lights then in the Arctic Circle in winter… We’ve just arrived in Lofoten a few nights ago & we hit the ground running! The forecast was for a partly cloudy evening, but after sunset the sky was perfectly clear (and a very cold minus 10 might we add lol). We hoped mother nature’s electrical phenomenon would make an appearance, so we got to work scouting a few potential locations, and then the show began. We thought it was all over & headed to this location around the Fjord on our return home & all of a sudden…a jaw dropping display of purple & greenish streamers of light filled the sky above our heads! What a way to start our 14 day trip here with even more clear nights ahead, so stay tuned. As always, we’d love to know what you guys think & tag a friend who might like this too! :D Dale & Karlie ______________________________________ For those interested in how we took this, it is a single image captured on the @nikonaustralia D810 + 14-24mm Lens. Camera settings were: 13” | f/2.8 | ISO4000. ______________________________________ For anyone interested in a ‘One on One’ photography workshop, or prices on any @nisifiltersaustralia, feel free to send us a message! 🙂
A novidade é que um fotógrafo muito persistente e apaixonado resolveu pedir sua namorada – também fotógrafa – em casamento no meio dessa paisagem incrível.
Dale Sharp já tinha tentado pedir Karlie Russel em casamento em uma viagem à Islândia, mas seus planos foram por água abaixo quando ela jogou fora o anel que estava dentro de um tubo de creme.
Tudo isso porque a alfândega barrou o peso das malas e eles tiveram de ‘se livrar’ de algumas coisinhas.
“Eu só fui descobrir semanas depois, quando já estávamos na Islândia e eu não encontrava o anel de jeito nenhum”, confessou ele.
Mas, para a sorte de ambos, a natureza nunca decepciona e esse memorável dia (06/03/2017) marcou não só o pedido de casamento como também a 30ª vez que Sharp e Russell contemplavam a Aurora juntos.
“Nós dois amamos perseguir a Aurora Boreal e fotografá-la juntos. Então, pareceu bastante apropriado. Eu não tinha ouvido ou visto ninguém fazer isso antes, e eu queria fazer algo diferente de todos os outros.”
Flakstad Beach, Norway… ______________________________________ Would you believe we waited for almost 5 hours for this moment in -15 degrees & it didn’t disappoint! 😮 This beach is popular with tourists & photographers, but, we always like to think outside the square & put our own spin on locations such as this. Most people who come here don’t venture up this far towards the rocks & at low tide one afternoon when scouting for different compositions other than the infamous beach reflection, we found this absolute gem of a spot! On low tide & with the help of the waxing gibbous moon (3/4), it helped light up this rock pool & with very small swell entering the pool it made for a great refection of the northern lights in the water. We were so surprised when the Aurora finally came out, but more so at this shape that only lasted a few seconds! It almost looks like our galaxy spiralling in the centre! What do you guys think of the shape & what does it look like to you? Feel free to tag a friend who might like this too! :) ______________________________________ For those interested in how we took this, it is a single image captured on the @nikonaustralia D810 + 14-24mm Lens.

“Foi a exibição de cor mais incrível na aurora que já vimos”, disse ele.
Depois de segundos de espanto e felicidade, Karlie concordou em se casar (ufa!) e o clique do noivado – que foi feito com o temporizador da câmera – já teve milhares de curtidas no Facebook e Instagram:
Lofoten, Norway… ______________________________________ WE'RE ENGAGED! What a better way to propose than in the heart of the Arctic Circle under the Northern Lights. It's taken a few years to plan but I always had this moment in mind & it seemed fitting as we are both landscape photographers who share a passion for photographing the aurora. Originally I was going to propose in Iceland last year but unfortunately Karlie decided to discard my secretly stashed ring (yes, that actually happened 😂 lol, we were trying to cut weight on a connecting flight from the Faroe Islands). Fortunately though my plan worked & tonight the aurora was firing in one of the most incredible displays of colour we have ever seen. I tricked Karlie into believing we were shooting a selfie & used a torch to light us up for the image. Much to her shock, it wasn't any normal selfie, and much to my shock, she said yes! 😝 This is a single image that was taken during the proposal. And now we may not have any of our own images up hanging on our walls at home…we may however, make an exception for this one. 💍 Dale & Karlie
Fica até difícil de superar um pedido de casamento desses
