Me, too! Spent 9 days in Iceland a few years ago waiting for the clouds to clear, and I realize that if they had, I had very little idea of how best to photograph them!

I wished 'd known this on my first adventure to see the Northern Lights in Norway, suffice to say those photos weren't great at all. Fantastic tips to keep in mind when I do venture to see them again.

Having grown up in Canada, I recall some spectacular displays of the Northern Lights, especially when I was young. What always impresses me is how they seem alive. I need to head to Northern Canada sometime in the next few years to see if I can get some photos of the lights. Great piece! Great photos! Thanks for all the advice.

Go to Fishermans Wharf. Rent a Bicycle. Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge. Stop at all viewing spots. On to Sausalito. Stop for Coffee and a cake. Sit on the sea wall and watch the Fishing Boats cleaning their nets. The Seagulls will steal your piece of cake when you're not looking . Back on the Bicycles and on to Tiburon using the Cycle Tracks. Find the Ferry Terminal then back home to base. Wonderful days excersise !

I think updates of this picture should be a recurring reminder of the seasons. Add coats to the chair, take them away. Add hot beverages, change to cold. And in fits of summer euphoria, add bathing suits, take them away... I'll be watching!
