These various photographs taken with an Apple iPhone. Not always but sometimes you can get a clean and sharp photo even with using a phone lens. These photos are straight from my iPhone. They have never been edited.
This new century brought us some new technological terms. Such as; iPhoneography and because of high usage of digital filters on smartphones you can easily manipulate the quality of a photograph. Since most of smart phone screens are built with a high quality screen they can cover up the loss of details at lower resolution. If you try to print a good looking Instagram photo on A3 paper size then you will see that quality is not the best term what you got on the paper. This is why photos taken with a smartphone can't match the quality of DSLR or equivalent. But sometimes you can take great photographs if the settings are right for that moment's light angle and amount.
After Sweden and Iceland I chose Northern Norway as my next Northern Lights destination. I visited Tromsø in the first week of March, 2015. I stayed there and rented a car to travel around the city.
Tromsø is a small city so you can easily see the city in a day. However there are few museums so if you want to visit them all, it may take two days or more. Intercity transportation is very easy with city buses and most places are in walking distance.
Cloudy Tromsø at Night
When I was in Swedish Lapland people were telling me that the weather in Northern Norway are much more unstable because of close distance to sea. I knew that is bad for watching Northern Lights and it’s not always easy to run away from a bad weather system. The weather in Tromsø was very unstable during the period I stayed there. One day it was all foggy, next day all cloudy, next day clear but then mixed rain and snow started and so on. Was it cold? No. It’s certainly not that cold like Swedish Lapland. In fact the weather is like in Stockholm or Oslo. Much more calm and warmer but again people said that this year it wasn’t so cold at all. Maybe it’s a global thing because Arvidsjaur, Sweden wasn’t cold either.
