Aurora fatalis

Doing tours, photography and time-lapsing brings lots of memories, good ones, great ones and some terrible ones. One night in Äkäslompolo it was a mix of all. I took my group on a fell to see the magic nightsky of Lapland. Lady Aurora put on a great show and the clients were happy.

Meanwhile I went away for a while to set up my time-lapse rig to realise a special sequence. Adjusting and testing takes quite some time, when it’s all done, it starts to be easy. Or impossible, because mine never started the way I wanted. One cable was broken and that was it for my idea. All around me were Northern lights, snow turned even greenish. It’s good you didn’t hear me there🙂

I had a spare cable further away but there just wasn’t time to get it – and I needed to attent to my group. So I shot a few photos in all directions and below is one of them. The group was super-happy, I enjoyed the ‘glow’ in their eyes and words and I got a few good shots. All good🙂 Already waiting for next winter to bring more people to these magical places up North.

  1. So happy to have you making my trips for me. Finland is in my bucket list. Just in case, I have your beautiful photos. I travel vicariously. Thank you.
