The photo was taken on 28 March 2017 at 00:46 in Nykarleby, Finland.


The Aurora forecasts were promising and I could see the green light from the balcony of my house. But it almost faded away before I could make my way out in the darkness. I decided to try a new location this time and that proved to be a good choice. I knew the small harbour would be a nice place with its boats up on land.


The sea was all covered in ice and it was still at least one month until the fishing season could start. When I arrived at around 23:30 the Aurora was like a green cloud in the north. Right before midnight it started getting stronger again. I started shooting but it wasn’t easy due to the strong wind. I tried to put my body weight on the tripod to prevent it from shaking.


Suddenly the Aurora filled the sky with green, yellow and violet light! It was moving fast. Unfortunately that is impossible to capture with a camera. I tried different angles and the shots with these sleeping boats and the little grill house gave me a nice foreground.  I realized this had been one of the most amazing Northern Lights I had ever seen.
