Northern Lights Galore!

The days up here in the Norwegian Arctic continue to get shorter and colder. However there is of course a silver lining... or more like a greenish purple lining. Yes the Northern Lights are here with a vengeance and I have been doing my best to get out and enjoy them when ever the weather allows. One of the benefits of living about the 71st parallel is that as long as the skies are clearish and there is at least a little bit of solar activity you are almost certain to get a good view of the Northern Lights. Before moving up to Finnmark I had only ever seen this phenomena a couple of times; once in British Columbia and once just outside of Quebec city. I cant help but think that once we move south to the Yucatan I am unlikely to see them again in a very long time and possibly ever... So I am really doing all I can to get as much in as I can. In any case, I hope you enjoy the photos.
