What a night again in Finnish Lapland! Today I started a 6 days photography workshop that I am leading in Utsjoki, literally in the very top north of Finnish Lapland, on the shore of the Teno River, which marks the border with neighbour Norway.

We had barely settled in our accommodations that a strong display of northern lights started in the sky, which coincided with the moment when the clouds departed, together with quite some strong wind (hence the blurry trees on the photos).

A first outburst lasted for about half an hour, with bright and fast auroras including several purple fringes. After it subsided for a while, another outburst of about 15 minutes was granted to our guests, some of them who had never seen the aurora before.

Note that so far north, most of the show was actually taking place in the southern part of the sky!

So to sum up: another brilliant night in northern Finnish Lapland!
