      That is spooky - sounds like girls all separately talking on their IPhones.

    Early for so far south, but it may prove that winter is just around the corner: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article11542544.ece

      Don't know anything about the Telegraph newspaper but they got one thing wrong: "floods in Australia" is absolutely wrong.
      We face 6 months of drought. Floods occur during La Nina, so they have at least one report wrong. Maybe others.

      Look at this one http://floodlist.com/australia and scroll down to see a few reports and photos from April this year. You only have to Google floods in Australia to see many, many reports of floods at various times. But also the Telegraph report merely states in one place that El Nino is linked to major global climate events, including ......... and floods in Australia, while in another para. it says [El Nino] threatens storms in ........ heavy storms and floods in western (sic) Australia.

      Well, that is news to us and probably most or all Aussies who have been here for most of their lives.
      The only good news for El Ninois that it will allow the strong westerly current off WA to reverse the devastating effects of the 2010-11 La Nina, which reduces the sea life to a minimum threshold.

    The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights-season as some refer to it, started a bit early this year with some pretty spectacular nights in August and the first half of September...

    I have been working literally around the clock, so the only shots I have are from the ferry.

    I know there is nothing waow about these shots, most were taken handheld, on a moving ferry in pitch darkness and with a very high ISO to compensate the motion blur.

    Starting with the two best shots, then after these, it's all downhill...

      Quality wise, these shouldn't actually be shown but I guess I'll let it pass for now. You know you can scroll past as fast as you want.

            We had a burst of the Aurora in our far south, in August. Nobody seems to know why it is rather early this year in both hemispheres or if it means a long strong winter or not.

            Interesting, nari. In fact, we hear very little of the southern Aurora, the spectacular pictures are all of the northern one.

            That is mainly because the Southern Hemisphere has so much ocean in it and so few people actually get to see the lights.
            Antarctica sports brilliant displays as does Patagonia and probably Kerguelen and Bouvetoya (penguins might like them) but that is about all. Those who live and work in Antarctica probably don't take too much notice after months of them.

          This video of Borialis and whales feed on Herring off Kvaloya, Troms has become world famous, but here they are "from the horses mouth" as it where: https://tv.nrk.no/serie/distriktsnyh...rdnytt#t=9m16s
