This stunning compilation was put together by James Stone. The text below is from his Vimeo page. He lives in Hobart and specialises in night-time photography. 

Obviously we love the aurora, which is why we put it in our logo! The bioluminescence in some of the imagery though takes it to another level. Brilliant work James!

A time lapse movie of highlights from my past six years chasing the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights in Tasmania.

I have been fortunate to witness 65 aurora events during this time, and have spent countless hours under the spectacular southern night sky. Sometimes solo, sometimes with friends, but always in awe.

Thanks to Jo, Carolyn and Kylie for your company.

Special thanks to Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service and the Friends of Maatsuyker Island.
