Spectacular northern lights aurora photo. In fact, no amount of words or, indeed, images could ever do real justice to the Aurora.

It is, to my mind, one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular natural phenomena – if not the most spectacular – and it’s hardly surprising that it’s on so many people’s ‘wish-list’.

The very first time I witnessed them for myself I was literally speechless. I just lay, silent in the snow, captivated by this truly amazing spectacle unfolding before my eyes. The only noises that I could hear were the faint sound of a reindeer bell tinkling in the distance and the sound of the my own breathing. It was a wonderful experience and one that will live with me for a lifetime.
