WPC: dance

610_2312-s_wThis week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “dance”

Ben told us, not to stick with the word literally. So, I picked this image taken two weeks ago in northern Norway, when the Aurora Borealis danced above me! What an experience!!!

This is one of my absolute favorites from that trip.

Take care have a great weekend!

  1. How awesome, in the true sense of the word, that you got to experience this! My husband would love to see the northern lights before he dies. 🙂


  2. I’ve on had a glimpse of the aurora borealis once and it was breath-taking! This looks like a dove…spectacular!

      1. I finally managed to see the full gallery!! It wasn’t working on my phone before. Wow, wow, wow! What a wonderful collection of images 🙂 The landscape is quite something! You really did get a fantastic light show. The sun has been quite active recently so you timed it well 🙂 It’s on my bucket list! Trouble is, hubby really doesn’t do cold 😦 I will get up there someday though. Iceland is my dream 🙂

        1. thank you so much, Sarah!
          yes, were got some luck for having these and clear skies at the right time. Although, we also have had auroras while completley covered skies.
          Btw. this isn’t Iceland. It’s northern Norway this time. 🙂

          1. Oh I realised it’s Norway! Just saying that I dream of going to Iceland 🙂 I’d love to journey up the fjords in Norway. Spectacular scenery! Wow, seeing them even with an overcast sky really shows how strong those solar storms were. The aurora was recently seen as far down as Dartmoor in the UK!

            1. Ah, OK, now I understand. You’re right, Sarah, Iceland is fantastic, too. You know, I was there in summer 2014. Many images are here in my blog already. And, I’m considering organizing another trip for 2018 for 5 – 7 participants.

  3. Exquisite. I had the good fortune to live in the north of Scotland about 20 years ago when there was much sunspot activity. This meant that the usual Northern Lights were multi-colored like a rainbow. It took my breath away.

    1. I really understand you, Kerry. It was breath-taking. I hope for another trip in about 10 years, when there is the next maximum.

        1. yes, that’s right, Kerry. But, you have to live in the right region for reacting so quickly. I’m way too far south. And, the other important fact is the huge light pollution here in my region. Although, every now and than the Aurora can be seen up to areas near the Alps. But here unfortunately only when a blackout is at the same time 😦 (hope, that will never occur)
          A few years ago, I was in the Bavarian Forest, a region between Bavaria and the Czech Republic. One night I was wondering about the strange light above the clouds. The next day, I read about a vast Aurora, visible ’til the Alps. But unfortunately not for me, because of the clouds 😦

            1. yep 🙂 I also love the hot regions more than the cold once. But, therefor the North has some other advantages.

    1. 🙂
      Indeed it is. And the feelings, when the aurora dances above you, are much more touching than any image can transport.
      Thanks, Cybel
