Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights Photographs

via OnlyJokingLasse

Finnish photographer Tom Eklund has a gorgeous selection of photos of the Northern Lights on his Aurora Borealis page. Just unbelievable! And while there is a perfectly scientific explanation for the aurora, I will reserve the right to believe magical and mystical things are involved :P

Tom also has wonderful nature photographs on his site. Both pages are well worth a visit. This site is good for the soul.

Fascinating. I would love to see the northern light in the nature someday.

me too. I've seen like a little pitiful glimmer of green - where we live in southern Finland, you rarely get them. My dad said he's seen them once, my mom said she's never seen them.

I am surpised.
I thought every Finnish had at least once seen it - even if s/he's not living close to it.

No, you'd have to travel about 10 hrs north. In the winter. In the DEATHLY cold. Heh, I'd rather head south :P One day, though, one day.
