Another aurora

I cannot remember a year with so much Northern Lights as this year. Since August I saw them at least 20 times, if not even more often. Today the forecast was quite good and when I saw the first pale aurora at 22:30 I drove to the beach. The Northern Lights covered half the sky but were quite weak. But after a while they became stronger.

For a short time they were very strong, but I was too slow with the camera. I didn’t catch the two bright shooting stars neither, but if was beautiful to see them. As beautiful as the aurora weakening again but then flickering very fast over half of the sky – like dancing a secret dance too swift to follow. Unphotographable – you have to come, be lucky and have a look by yourself.

    Just have to say, your pics are absolutely amazing. Best winter pics I have ever seen.

    I was born and brought up in Skelleftehamn, but live in the outskirts of Stockholm since 30 years. See you in Skelleftehamn.

    Hej Örjan Edholm, tack så mycket!

    Jag har gjort tvärtom: jag flyttade från München (1 300 000 invånare) till Skelleftehamn (lite mindre).
