Great Snipe in Midnight Sun

Here in Northern Norway, the midnight-sun period is now in full swing and the sun is shining all the night.

Yesterday evening me and a friend went out with our cameras to view the spectacular display of the Great Snipe (Gallinago media) - a near threatened bird - that tradtitionally gathers on leks located on wet mires with tussucks. The strange noise they make, which has been likened to a "ping-pong-match" clould be heard among the tussucks of cloudberries and bog rosemary in the low midnight sun - a beautiful experience and a wonderful bird.

Photo Exhibition on Baffin Island, Arctic Canada

Last year, my first full-scale international photo exhibition was held in the Canadian capital Ottawa during the three-week long winter-festival "Winterlude".

Later the photo exhibition was displayed in Edmonton, Alberta during the Scandinavian Heritage Fair and now the large panels of the aurora images from Kvaløya, Norway travel all the way to the far north of the Canadian Arctic to Baffin Island and the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum in Iqaluit.

Aurora Images on Display in Ottawa, Canada

I am proud to have images of Northern Lights on display on Baffin Island and I wish the visitors and organisers all the best from a fellow location in the high north.
