I confess! I'm a sucker for photos of the Northern Lights – maybe it is because I've never been blessed to see this incredible event (at least that's what I've seen it called) – so when I see a Canon EOS 5D Mark II timelapse put together I get a little giddy and have to share it. I've been reading about the recent solar flare activity and watching alerts go out on twitter (yes, now they have own alerts!) and there's a website for predictions too. I live in St. Louis Missouri and the odds of me seeing one here are very slim – so I love seeing videos like this. Hope you do too.

Last week I was again in Norway for shooting northern lights. This time I was very lucky, there was a lot of activity on the sky especially on the 24 January. The scenes are from Ravnastua, Skoganvarre and Lakselv. The first two days I had a lot of trouble with frozen Cameras. It was -25°C (-13°F) and after 1-2 hours of shooting the lens was frozen.
