Nordlys in Norway
It's been a year since last I was standing underneath an aurora, looking straight up to the sky above as it danced around my head.

Moonlight and Auroras

When The Stars Come Out

Snow and Light in Norway
Snow hides everything you don’t want to see. It silently arrives in the depth of night and fills in the gaps, wipes away the footsteps from yesterdays photographers and leaves you a clean slate to work with every morning. Snow clones out the messy bits better than any Photoshop session.
