We had some pretty intense nights here in the north of Sweden in January and February. It has been a while ago that I uploaded some pictures of the northern lights. So I thought it’s time again. Enjoy Overhead aurora craziness on the 10th of February. All pictures taken with my old Canon 5D Mark... Continue Reading →

I thought it was time to upload a few pictures of my second favorite hobby again. It’s winter here in Sweden at that means that, when the temperature drops under a minus 15 degrees Celsius, you wills find me outside trying to catch the beauty of soap bubbles that are freezing while in the air....

The darkest day of the year!

As soon as the temperature is below minus 15 degrees Celsius you will find me outside with my camera and my daughters soap bubbles.To make really nice pictures the sun should be shining and the wind should gently blow. Not... Continue Reading →

The Day the Sky Exploded 7/11/2017
On the 7th of November 2017 I had the privilege to watch a massive solar storm from my porch. It started around 10p.m and lasted about 3 hours. Not much words needed. I leave you alone with this experience... Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights A circle right over my garage - minutes after I took... Continue Reading →
