Aurora over Steinsvik Beach

Aurora over Steinsvik Beach

A flamboyant flare up of the aurora over Steinsvik Beach, in Nordreisa, Troms, Norway. It lasted no more than 10 minutes from start to finish but it lit up the entire sky and took the photographer by surprise, just as he was about to leave the shoot. The figure on the right is his brother, furiously searching for his lens cap to capture the same phenomena. It was hard for the photographer not to laugh at his brother while moving the camera left to right capturing the panorama, but luckily he stood still long enough to make the final capture.
