Northern Lights

I only saw the first Northern Lights in 2014 when I was living in a tent on the island of the Finnish horses. I waded half-naked into the cold water on a small island and made a tripod out of a dog food bowl, getting a few shaky shots. In the winter of 2015, I was already running Northern Lights safaris in Ivalo, teaching how to photograph them and taking pictures of tourists with the northern lights. But my best moments with the Northern Lights have been alone in the bosom of nature, with my animal friends by my side.  My photos have not been stitched from multiple images or otherwise heavily edited. I sometimes illuminate the foreground of the picture with a headlamp.
