Austrian Nights (http://www.karljohnston.com/art/slave-river-aurora/4760382)

I named this shot after an Austrian couple of aurora photographers that I ran into while journeying to this location. We introduced ourselves and they told me they had arrived in Ft Smith for a couple of nights, just to check it out. They were travelers, and apparently had come upon the town by random.

Stefan, the man, had stopped at the road and looked up only to see the aurora dancing above. He had only seen it once or twice before, when he lived and worked along the Mackenzie river on a boat, he told me, while I told him that I would take him to one of the spots I like to shoot at.

His wife followed us through the dark trails as I led them to the river, and up onto a hidden beach. The aurora was so active that we quickly mounted our cameras unto tripods and began shooting. Eventually they had to leave, and although I missed meeting up with them the next day I tried tracking them down at the hotel..to no avail, however, I hoped to make up for my absence by naming this print after our meeting (which made my week)

That's strange..it's displaying everywhere else for people. :shrug:

If you click the heading it'll take you to my page where you can see the picture.

A very nice image however finding the hidden link as it was not in normal blue was a problem. I at first looked at write up and just scratched my head and nearly misted seeing picture altogether. Really does need the link ID to be better.

Oh how odd as soon as I posted this picture came up. Not sure if something to do with firefox? Or is it a very big image?

MUCH nicer when the image is uploaded directly (please just keep image UNDER 250K to avoid compression) or just embedded as a link.

I'm fixing this for you using your own link. FAB image for sure :highfive:

actually - the way the image is set up on your site you cannot call it directly from a link. Please upload directly or use flickr/photobucket to call the link in the future.

Here you have to go to Properties and copy the adress to clipboard, then paste it in a new tab's adress bar and open from there. Kind a quirky. :)

The image is super! :thumbup: (not just cos I'm originally from Austria :D)

Very nice photo indeed. The best I've seen so far from you Kaja.

It is nicer to have the photo showing here though. I don't usually bother to go following links elsewhere as it's often just a sly attempt to garnish more visitors to someones website or blog.
