The first NLCs I got to witness this year!

It was already 2am local time when I noticed them, but even up here around the 62°N latitude the clouds were bright enough to outshine the northern summer night sky.
During the summer months the Sun doesnt dip that deep below the horizon here, so theres not that much contrast between the sky and the NLCs, but that also means you can see the clouds throughout the night.
All in all, welcome display on a beautiful bright and calm summer night here at the summer cottage.

Gear: Nikon D750 & Samyang 14mm f/2,8
