RE: A dream came true: The Magical Aurora Borealis
This is a trip that you will never forget. And I will never forget those photos. I'm sorry to hear that you had issues with luggage but you have luckily sorted that out.
I'm coming from a protected area in the East of Slovakia and we were also using black pebbles instead of chemicals. There is a huge dam with drinking water and for this reason no chemicals are allowed in the area.
Your photos are absolutely stunning! Two days is way to short to stay there. I can imagine being there every night :)
Thank you for sharing your work with us. I have enjoyed it a lot!
