This was shot on 30 January 2017 at 00:24 in Nykarleby, Finland. I saw the Northern Lights from my house but I knew I had to put my one-year-old son to bed before I could drive away from the light-polluted small town where I live.   When I arrived at the harbour I thought, as I often do, that I was too late.


I could only see a few wisps of the Northern Lights but they hadn’t finished dancing quite yet. After half an hour they grew stronger again and formed this wonderful shape that you see here. This night it was very quiet. The only sound I could hear was the strange, almost scary, rumbling sound as the ice shifted with the changing water levels. It’s hard to describe it but I call it the “monster sound”.


I remember it was cold so I had to keep moving during the long exposures to keep warm. After an hour of shooting at the harbour I felt quite satisfied with what I had. This photo which turned out to be the best shot that night and it’s one of my personal favourites. I decided to call it Silent Green since it was taken on a very calm night and the green colour was unusually intense.
