long exposure

Before first hint of light

My flickr contact Pete Huu has posted another stunning long exposure landscape taken near Helsinki, Finland.

I’m guessing that those clouds look the way they do because they were moving in the long exposure but I have no idea (I asked him up on flickr, will post his answer when I get it).

Update: Jonne (in comments) and the comment stream up at Flickr clued me in that this is the Aurora borealis. Amazing to see them this color.
