What a unique opportunity to shoot the northern light from home :-)

Yesterday I missed it, but tonight there was a second opportunity.
It was extremely busy at the beach in Egmond.
We were lucky to capture the best moment around 10PM

How fortunate. Didn't know it would be so clearly visible so far south. Particularly as a result of light pollution that I would expect to be pretty strong in most parts of Europe that have cities and towns all around.
Great experience, great image. Thanks for sharing.

I find aurora borealis pictures often boring, but this one is nice. It not just has the northern lights, but with a nice foreground. I like it. Well done.

Well done Fred, I went out to the Brechtse Heide, a little north from where I live with relatively little light pollution. But nothing to see until ~9:15 pm and then the thw hole area between north and west from where I was standing started filling with clouds . So no Aurora photos from me

I agree with Addy, it's not only the sky, but also how you used the foreground and the sea that makes it a spectacular photo

Yes, congratulations on this one - well caught! The reddish part was visible north of here (by others, not me), and I'm intrigued by the exposure - could you see it with the naked eye, or were you shooting blind, as it were?

Although the camera can make faint auroras more visible, for decent aurora photos you still want to see the lights also by your own eyes.

Thanks all! Shooting it was on my bucket list too. I can postpone my trip up north now
I hadn't seen it in real before, and never expected to shoot it so close to home. It's quite exceptional.
Sometimes it can been seen on the islands in the north of the country, but not this far south, and with this intensity.
It was an exciting experience. It could be seen with the naked eye, but when I reveiled my first 10 sec exposure shot on the screen of my camera, it was a real WOW moment.

One more for you showing the wider view. And notice all the people near the sea.
When I left around 10.45pm, there was still a traffic jam on the boulevard from people arriving (too late )
