January News Update – On the Hunt of the Northern Lights
Let me try to come up with two, not just one good reason for not joining our Finland Northern Lights Workshop – but before I answer, a short story from the past.
A night north of the Arctic Circle in Kuusamo, Finland where the temperature had dropped to minus 15 degrees celsius, a miracle happened. Over me, the Northern lights had started to dance, they started with long blue-green snake-shaped formations in the sky. First, they moved north to south and then changed to a warm color like a mixture of orange and mustard yellow. In truth, a great and for me a fantastic moment and experience – and yes, of course, I shot pictures, lots of pictures in the frozen night north of the Arctic Circle. Sorry, I forgot to answer that question – I have actually one good reason – in Finland, there are no palm trees.
At last, let me share with you an introduction video of our workshop in Finland. Click the below video and enjoy watching!
