Beautiful auroras over the fjord Ersfjord close to the city Tromsø.
The strong light from the full moon brightens the landscape, and the night sky has turned blue.

Reindeer racing is an event that takes place every year in February as a part of
the celebration of the National Sami Day. A reindeer can reach a speed of more than 60 km/h.
This race is from the main street in the arctic city Tromsø in Northern Norway.




 And here is the winner! The fastest reindeer is not named Rudolph, but S. Ruskut.

Some Northern Lights photographed in October 2014. It was a dark night with no moonlight, the landscape is mostly silhoutte. But the ice on this small lake makes some nice reflections of the auroras. These northern lights had a lot of purple and red colour, not only the usual green.
Auroras can be green, yellow, purple, red and even blue, depending on what kind of gases the solar particles hit when entering the atmosphere.

January is dark and cold in Tromsø, so it's a perfect time to arrange the Tromsø International Film Festival.
This is the outdoor cinema in the city square, the screen is made of snow and ice.

The One-Eyed house on Sommarøy (Summer island)
It is not a reflection - the sun shines through two opposite windows in the house.
This phenomen is visible only two times a year, and only for a few minutes.

 

 

Two seasons from the same viewpoint.
The first one is taken at midnight in the beginning of June, the midnight sun never sets.
The second one is taken three and a half months later, also at midnight.

A very powerful outburst of Auroras on a dark February night. The light was so bright that the tree
cast a shadow on the snow. I have never seen that before.


 

"Angel Wings"
Some of the most beautiful auroras I have witnessed.
