Magic colors struck earth on october 25, 2011. This was just outside the city of Tromsø, Norway. I had an amazing photo trip this evening/night. After weeks with poor weather conditions, I didn’t have much hope for clear sky tonight, either. But just before midnight it started to clear up. And what a display I withnessed! I’ve never seen red and purple Auroras with the naked eye before tonight. In some of the photos I even got red reflections in the sea.
