Northern lights – Norway and Iceland
I have spent prolonged time in both northern Norway (Senja Island) and Iceland. During these times I was mostly there to work with the orcas, however the northern lights proved more reliable. It is not always easy to see the aurora, the first thing you need is clear skies, which is certainly not guaranteed in the Arctic in winter. If you are lucky enough to see the lights do remember that long exposure digital photography has helped to make them look brighter in photographs than they appear to your eyes, however seeing the dancing lights has to be one of the natural wonders of the world!
