Northern Lights adventure.

Continuing from post seeking on how to shoot aurora lights, here is that adventure. Sorry, it's long over due as I forgot I did not post it up.

My adventure started by flight to Oslo on the 1st of December 2016.
A night (or was it day) in Oslo..City tour and the likes...nothing that a group tour from the far east won't go...

Re: Northern Lights adventure.

That night, we moved to the Igloo hotel.







These I figured out were the older ones. The design was a tat bad as they smooth tiled the inside. Imagine walking in with your snow boots on My wifey went flying but thankfully, the 3 layers protected her from any huge damage..just a bruised ego

And also solly, can't post bigger pictures as the glass is really see thru
