Before I start I must tell you that I did not take these photos. They were all taken by friends we made on the cruise, and who had bought special equipment and lens in the hope of getting photos of the event. They very kindly shared them with me.
As I mentioned in my last post, we took a private tour the first night in Alta but didn't see the Northern Lights. Those who couldn't get on that tour took a shorter one the following night but had to be back onboard by 10.30pm as we were sailing at 11pm.
As it turned out, they were the ones who got lucky.
We did see the Lights ourselves from our balcony on the ship but my photos are very inferior to these and not worth posting.
I lay on the lounger on our balcony in the -12C temperature wrapped up in blankets and fleeces, looking up to the sky and snapping away hoping to get one decent shot, but they all turned out very grainy. At least we did see them though.
So here are the good photos not taken by me!
