Northern Lights in Norway

2018-02-16_3175_SvdW-Edit
Northern lights over the Lofoten and Vesterålen islands in Norther Norway. Although I experienced this phenomenon a couple of times now it is still amazing to see the Northern Lights dance in the night sky above. Especially when you have an interesting landscape in front of you to complete the picture.

Landscapes around the town of Svolvaer in the Lofoten archipelago during winter. I never get tired of these impressive mountains rising up from the sea. Especially combined with the soft winter light.

Sea Eagles or White Tailed Eagles hunting in a Fjord near the Vesterålen islands in Northern Norway. Such impressive birds, especially when they're hunting for fish.

A little less known than the Lofoten archipelago, but equally beautiful is Vesterålen, a group of islands in Northern Norway. Empty beaches in a rugged landscape are a photographer's dream.
