Night Sky 6

Not the greatest shot of the Northern Lights in the world, but then it wasn’t the greatest display either. However it does at least prove that we saw them.

Interestingly, to the naked eye, the Aurora came across as a much paler green than this, more like a grey-green mist just above the horizon. It’s the camera that’s really picked up the luminous, glowing quality…..and I promise that I haven’t enhanced this too much in post-processing.

Arty Lake Inari

I’ve experimented a bit in post-processing with the three images below. The idea was to create a set of arty digital photographs that hopefully depict some of the key elements of the beautiful winter landscapes around frozen Lake Inari – the gloomy blue half-light, the icy-cold stillness and the promise of a warm welcome visible in the distance:

Inari Church

Inari village has a population of about 600-700 people, but in the sparsley populated area of northern Finland (where there are more Reindeer than people) this counts as a bustling metropolis.

Below are a couple of images of the pretty little Church that we passed on our walk into the village:
