Catching the Northern Lights in Greenland

We’re from our epic trip kayaking and camping in Greenland (plus a few days’ stopover in Copenhagen, where we got to meet with old Sydney-sider friends and feast in some of the best restaurants in the world.

Anyway, I’ve finally downloaded the photos to the large screen and I’m starting to look through some now. This picture brought me right back to camping night 2 of our Greenland trip, in this quiet little bay. I woke up at 11pm to try my luck spotting northern lights, and initially, couldn’t spot anything with my naked eye. But a quick look at the test shot I took on my camera yielded this. As I stared back into the night sky, the lights grew stronger and more active, so I woke the others up and we spent some glorious 20 minutes stamping our feet in the frozen ground, mesmerized by the dancing display above.
