I spent 13 nights in Northern Norway (January 6-18th). Every day I thought: will I see the northern light tonight? It does not show up every night. I saw it only three nights – three nights following each other. The light appeared on the sky, disappeared for a while, and appeared again a little later. The pictures I took the first night were not successful. I experimented a little with my camera, and here you see the result. I must admit that I have seen more wonderful northern light – more like curtains – some years ago.
First it was very small. 最初は小さかったです。
The third night was the best one. 三番目の晩が一番よかったです。
Taking pictures of the northern light was challenging in various ways. My fingers quickly got extremely cold, because I had to take off my gloves to be able to take pictures. I ran inside ever so often to get my fingers warm again.
The pictures of the northern light are all taken in Oksfjord in Northern Troms.
