Northern lights and clouds

Since moving up here, there have been several nights with (strong) northern lights... Sadly, anytime it happened, there were also clouds... My first time I saw a faint shimmer behind the clouds, I was able to get some really blurry shots. More recently, the northern lights showed again and I could see again nothing but…

Throwback to snowier days

The last time it snowed some more, before the spring weather set in, I went out to take some pictures with my drone and just enjoy the fresh powdery snow. It was amazing how beautiful bright and white everything looked then and how different it looks now. I still haven't given up hope for some…

Roadtrip to Boden

On sunday it was especially beautiful. Just 2 days earlier some fresh snow had fallen, but the temperature dropped below…

Walk in the woods

Today was a beautiful day outside, so I took the chance to go for a walk in the woods. The warm temperatures of the last few days have melted away a fair amount of snow, so in the forest bits and pieces of bushes and smaller plants started to show again. The snow itself was…
