Sunbath! That’s about it….

Midnight photography.

The road that I live on.

Went out with the camera last night. There is something about walking around in the woods during the night. It is dark but at the same time it’s not. The snow illuminates everything. After a while the moon came out as well.

It is so quiet. Complete silence. You can hear the animals at times. Maybe the snow falling.

There live four people on our road 🙂

Northern Lights & snow & the moon.

Quick post today. Was about to walk home with my dogs…

Then I changed my mind and ran back inside (the Lodge) and got my camera (and left some stunned & annoyed looking doggies 😀 ).

The northern Lights are out and the moon is stunning this evening. We haven’t had a clear night like this in ages! It’s been snowing lots and lots, which is good but it was so nice to see the stars again. I can get lost in these stars.

Anyways, when we say that the snow illuminates everything… it’s hard to describe what that looks like. On our darkest days we have about 2,5-3 hours of daylight. You might say that that sounds very dark but… the snow illuminates everything! Especially when the moon is out like tonight. Can you see the clear shadows of the trees on the frozen lake? That is moonlight. Moonlight illuminating the snow.

Get it now? 🍃🍃

Oh ya, you can see my cabin on the first picture… I forgot to turn the lights off.

The Northern Lights activity from last night.

So I heard there was going to be a lot of Northern Lights activity yesterday evening… Like A LOT. I contemplated for quite some time if it was worth walking home, getting all of my camera equipment ready and to head out. Especially after the last fiasco… 

I decided it was worth it and this is the result!

Did you know we arrange Northern Lights Snowmobile safaris?
We have perfect conditions to see the Northern Lights up here. Come join us for a snowmobile Safari out into the wilderness, into the darkness to search for the Northern Lights. It is an amazing feeling to drive out into the woods, turn off the snowmobiles….. First complete darkness, then, if lucky, the sky turns flashes of green which dances above you. And the silence. Complete silence.

PS: Look at that moon!!
