Photographer Ole Christian Salomonsen is a master at capturing the northern lights in all their glory… as this image once again shows.
Ole describes the story behind this photo:
“Shot at the end of a ‘weak’ aurora night in Muonio, Finland. Took this at outside the cabin I was staying at close to Harriniva. The outburst came from an CME that first started disappointingly weak. I was about to go to bed but thought I should wait just a little more and see. Man am I glad I waited!!”
Man, are we glad too! Thanks for sharing these amazing views with us Ole, and keep up the great (and chilly) work!
