It was another warm night on our hill top and the hazy cloud was patchy and the clear open areas of sky kept changing but we had a good view. Our visitors tonight were determind to see something and with cameras set up we waited. The fireside though was drawing us near and the laughter from the group inside made those outside wonder what they were missing out on. Such futures told tonight in this beautiful landscape.
Tonight the cloud opened as we headed out of town the heavy snow had stopped falling but the snow ploughts were still hard at work clearing the roads. We stopped and checked the sky for signs of northern lights at our usual spots, but there was nothing to stay to watch. Then as we arrived to our base camp the first signs of activity were to be seen, then the arc of green light crept across the sky. So we gathered outside our base camp and began to photograph the northern lights, they became quite bright but then faded as they do so often. As we walked up to our hill top the northern lights again began to brighten and we hurried up to our viewing spot to watch the northern lights dancing across the northern sky, so beautiful. It was quite strange to be on our hill top in mid February under a clear sky and for it to be so warm, quite close to zero, quite exotic for us.
After seeing the northern lights from the very beginning, we decided to wait outside to see if the lights would get better.
And the lights played along very well!
Just before leaving back home Mother Nature showed us a spectacular display of northern lights.
Just after we arrived on our little hilltop, the northern lights were already visible to the naked eye. Little did we know that this was just the beginning of a spectacular night filled with perfect northern lights!
Tonight as the snow fell outside we gathered around the fires to enjoy this aspect of Lapland life. The warm glow and dancing flames lifting spirits while we enjoyed our food and warm drinks. Then came the time to discover what lies ahead in our futures, what a night we had sharing this experience together.
The snow was falling tonight as we waited for some clear sky to give us a chance of seeing the northern lights. The glow of the fire drew the clients towards them, though it was not cold the firelight looked so welcoming. Around the fire much fun was had and when it came to face the future¨predictions once again there were some amazing moments to come, just around the corner in peoples lives.
Tonight we made our way out into the wilderness under the cover of cloud and falling snow. We arrived to our base camp and made our way to the viewing location. The sky was without stars visible but quite bright, but just white through the camera. Then as the explanation of the northern lights began a band of brightness became visible along with the first stars. The band of brightness faded then returned brighter and also this time with the clear structure of the northern lights arc across the sky. And sure enough it was green in our pictures, a better result than had been imagined after the cloudy snowy start to the trip. The northern lights strengthened and then faded as they can do, the stars stayed visible above us. The fireside was the place to be while the northern lights took a rest, and in one clients future a moose was clearly seen posing in a majestic way. What an animal to represent your standing in the world.
The northern lights were visible when we arrived at our base camp, so it was lights out and cameras ready straight away, good job we had our guests cameras set up before we arrived to the wilderness. The band of green light looked so beautiful in the pictures, the tree tops in front of parts of it made such good photographs. Then again from the hill top the lights continued to delight, a little pale and fuzzy from time to time but becoming brighter and clearer for our visitors.
