    "Arctic Alps"

    The majestic Lyngen alps in Troms County, shot on Januar 24 2012, a night containing
    spectacular auroras from the hugest solar flare in 7 years. This shot however was
    done inbetween the most intense auroras, as I did not want the auroras to steal
    all the attention from the beautiful landscape and mountaints. :)

    Auroras was all over the skies this evening, which makes it fantastic for documenting
    the phenomena, but more challenging to make a landscape photography which balances the
    elements well.

    The Lyngen Alps are a major tourist attraction, attracting freeride skiers from
    all over the world, every year. Sadly the alps are dangerous and many people often
    get injured and have to be rescued. The alps are known for the dangerous steep
    walls, but also for it's beauty.

    In the foreground a partially frozen pond, giving awesome reflections from the
    wonderful aurora dancing over the alps.

    Shot with 14mm on a full frame body, so you can imagine the alps are huge!

    Very windy, and very cold this evening, but you seem to forget this when
    standing there overwhelmed by natures finest displays.

    Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Nikon 14-24 2.8 @14mm, f/2.8

      Magnificent work and workmanship. I will never get to see such a wonder as I am not up to it at my current age and physical condition, so it is with a debt of gratitude that I view this and say thank you for exhibiting it here, for me to see and enjoy. Even if it is a magnificent image in every way, I'm sure that being there was a sublime experience. Thank you for your wonderful work.
