Voitto Pitkanen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

This shooting destination of mine is traditionally one of the last of the season. Shots with a 600mm combination. The crescent moon lit up the landscape quite a bit, but the glow of the aurora borealis was gone. In total, 25 min of exposure (1-1.5 min/time) and 15 shots.
