Dance of the heavens. Is this the best sight to fall asleep to? I think it's a front-runner.

March 11th, 2013, 2am

We had just spend hours photographing an amazing display of the lights and were trying to find somewhere to camp (i.e. park the van). We found this little lay-by surround by mountains and, as it was after 02:00 and were were tired and hungry, we pulled over and made some food.

The lights here were quite quiet, but I wanted to see where exactly we where (it was total darkness), so I took some photos of the surrounding area. When I was doing this, the Aurora started up again with another amazing display.

Luckily the surrounding mountains were quite spectacular.

Philippe, Craig, Adrian, Christine and 3 others said thanks.
