I was driving home from work around 8 pm - was probably singing to myself in the car like I do - when I looked up and saw something greenish against the dark sky.
A U R O R A !
I couldn't drive the last 500 meters home but instead parked my car and was so thankful that for once I had my camera with me! No tripod, though, but it didn't matter. For years I've dreamed of photographing the Aurora.
I eventually drove home, put on some more clothes, took the tripod and headed back. The last three pictures were taken literally on my doorstep. What more can one hope on an ordinary Tuesday?
