One of nature's finest spectacles, beautifully captured, Melanie: what a wonderful experience to have witnessed this first hand, and you have managed some wonderful shots.

They're all lovely Mel. and I'm sure others as well as myself are suitably jealous, not just that you got the pic, but for even being there to see it..

The use of the headlights was smart..nice one

For someone who says: "Thing's change - I don't get the opportunity to be out and about as much as in times past." -- you sure manage to get around. Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Ireland, now Sweden.

And at each place, wherever you go, you find light that is extraordinary. This one is an example.

Wonderful, brilliant, beautiful, exceptional.

Best regards,

Bill
