Ever wanted to shoot the northern lights? This could be your chance!
Photographers Antony Spencer and David Clapp are heading to the Arctic in October to photograph the northern lights and you can join them.
They have organised workshops to Tromso and the Lofoten Islands, with the first trip leaving on 05 October 2011. There is also another trip heading out on 22 February 2012. Prices start at £1295 for four full days of shooting and five nights chasing aurora. Accommodation and flights are included.
Explaining why the next few years are going to be fantastic for northern lights photography, Antony Spencer said: "The sun is always active around the equinoxes, which means a high chance of incredible displays of aurora. The next few years are going to utterly spectacular as the sun reaches it's solar maximum in early 2013 (the peak of sunspot activity)."
David Clapp added that the pair will try their best to maximise your chances of seeing aurora: "Other non photographic aurora tours and cruises are not as reactionary. We are constantly monitoring conditions both above and beyond to ensure we maximise our chances every night."
It's not all about the night either; there are epic landscapes waiting to be photographed. From mountains to fjords in stunning light and seascapes and snow scenes to explore, the shooting options are literally mind-blowing.
