I had a very successful trip inside the Arctic Circle to Tromso, Norway, in Mid November to photograph and view the Northern lights. While we had some cloud on the first few nights, I had managed to scout a great white sandy beach on the West Coast near Sommoray on one of the nights.
I returned on my last night to the beach and witnessed a beautiful Auroral display.
On one of the mornings, I made a time lapse movie showing how the Sunrise to Sunset at this time of the year only lasts 3.5 hours, with the Sun only reaching a maximum of 2 degrees above the horizon.
For more shots of the Aurorae I saw plus a nice Sunrise timelapse video, check out my Flickr site!
