Glorious glow

DSC_1506-1Our first attempt hunting for the Northern Lights in Kiruna, Swedish Lapland, had proven to be a fruitful one. The lights were extremely strong, and for the first time, we had witnessed the “dancing Aurora”. It was truly one of the most spectacular sights we had ever seen. I do not think, that I can ever grow tired of photographing this nature’s great phenomenon!

    • Sorry for the late reply Sreejith, we must have been running around in Sweden and had forgotten to reply during the madness.
      The aurora is my favourite! Would happily spend everyday photographing it. The goal for next time is to find something iconic to include in the foreground!
      Hope you will get to see it for yourself!

    • Cheers Mike, I’m sure you’d love it! Our fingers and toes were falling off by the end, but neither of us wanted to go home! It’s such an amazing sight.

      Merry Christmas to you too! We’ve just had some heavy Lapland snow, now it feels more like Christmas.

    • Hi there!
      Thank you very much, it was pretty chilly over there! After some time on the hill, one’s rear end becomes rather cold!
      From our experience, Lapland is definitely a better destination for Northern lights, we went out 5 nights, and managed to see Aurora on all 5 nights!

  1. Thank you so much for this stunning photo of such a spectacular sight, It is something I am probably never going to see myself so I am so grateful to you for sharing it.

    • You are ever so kind Karen.
      It is true that several elements are required to harmonise in order to see the aurora (such as the latitude, weather and most importantly solar activity), but with some patience and a few attempts here and there, I’m certain that you will be able to see it.
      For instance, We have tried many times in Iceland but without a great deal of luck, but in Swedish Lapland, we had a 100% hit rate!
