Visibility IV / V

Arja Siikström, Sisä-Savon Ursa

During a caravan trip in northern Norway, there was a special desire to photograph northern lights for the first time north of the Arctic Circle. The weather was unstable and cloudy, but on the last night of the trip in Karasjoki the weather became clear in the early evening and the northern lights were already visible before I was ready to photograph them. Northern lights were over a wide area in the sky. At times, the color pounded into the sky properly. The active phase lasted about an hour in the evening. I couldn't stand it any more. A unique experience for a person living in Central Finland.
