Bye-Bye Northern Lights, the new go-to for a perfect social media shot is Australia’s Southern Lights!
The Aurora Australis is making its way through Tasmania and people are going crazy for it. It’s not every day you get to experience the beauty of colors painted in the sky and because an image is worth a thousand words, the observers have taken plenty.
The Southern Lights has touched not just Tasmania but certain locations in New Zealand too. Excuse me as I book a flight on credit to New Zealand.
Below are the most beautiful images captured by Instagram users:
Tinderbox, Tasmania Upon hearing that there was a reasonably strong chance of seeing the Aurora Australis on 31/08/2017 I decided to try my luck at photographing it by heading down to the coast in Tinderbox, Tasmania. And I was so glad that I did. Whilst the aurora was present throughout the night, it really got going at around 10pm and for a period of about 10 minutes was clearly visible with the naked eye. This was my first time seeing and photographing the aurora and I’ve got to say that it was an absolutely amazing experience. ————————————————- Nikon D800 Nikkor 27-70mm f/2.8 f/2.8 2.5s ISO6400 Benro FTA18AB0 Travel Angel Tripod with B0 Ball Head 262 Photographs @ 30fps ————————————————- Prints Available: joshtagiphotography.com Email enquiries: [email protected] ————————————————- #aurora #auroraaustralis #southernlights #seeaustralia #exploreaustralia #australiashotz #cruisingaustralia #wanderaustralia #australiagram #wandervictoria #wow_australia2017 #tasmania #tasmaniagram #discovertasmania #hobartandbeyond #tassiepics #instatasmania #instatassie #amazingtasmania #longexpoelite #longexpohunter #longexposureshots #natgeolandscape #longexposure_shots #longexposhots #longexposure_world #agameoftones #ig_masterpiece #ig_exquisite #ig_shotz
Aurora was cranking last night! Unfortunately this was the last shot my trusty camera took before I slipped on the rocks and hit the deck and it went for a swim 😭 I have a bruised butt and a bruised ego but I'm fine. Glad I could salvage at least one good shot from the memory card so here's a very quick edit. This was just the test shot I took when I first arrived. So rest in peace my Canon 5DmkIII and my old faithful Samyang 14mm 😭 You served me well. Taken from Howrah Beach just outside the Hobart CBD in Tasmania, Australia. #auroraaustralis #southernlights #tasmania #tasmaniagram #instatassie #discovertasmania
