Kola Peninsula, Russia. 2011

A trip to the Kola Peninsula in Russia to watch the spectacle of northern lights.

The show wass truly amazing and worth the effort. Experiencing the North in winter was as much of an experience though. From Lovozero – a little village lost in Kola Peninsula, through Murmansk – the biggest city north of the Arctic Circle in the World – to the classic St. Petersburg – it was a feat to watch the everyday life unfold in these rough conditions with hardly any daylight and everything frozen like a rock.
