taken last march in tromso norway. sorry for the exif details on the date, i had just taken my camera for firmware update and cleaning before this trip so fixing the date was the last thing on my mind.

traveling with my wife to let her see aurora together with my buddy iurie (www.500px.com/iuriebelegurschi) and a couple of other friends.

we were at a gas station eating southeast of overcast tromso when I was seeing a bit of activity over the horizon. so we packed and headed to this shipyard by the inner coastline.

walked 300m knee deep snow after I had taken a profile pic of me and my wife under the lights. it was a 30 min amazing show that just went kaput after... like having the lights turned off. it was an amazing show though I got maybe 3 kinds of auroral activity types on a short window.

you can actually see the milky way on the sky but it was washed out by aurora and the moon.
