Clear skies were forecast whilst exploring the Swedish Arctic Circle, so I headed out late to see if I would be lucky enough to witness the aurora borealis (northern lights).

Driving through a forested area, I found a lay-by and sat to watch as the skies grew darker. Gradually, a faint green glow appeared sinuously weaving around the stars; we watched in awe as it danced its way over snow covered trees and its glow reflected in the river. The skies and forest seemed to be dancing together in harmony.
