Frozen forest aurora, Finland

Frozen forest aurora, Finland

Aurora unexpectedly erupts over a forest thick with snow in Finnish lapland. I was out shooting the milky way when this happened - its always good to look behind you! The trees were so heavy with snow that they are almost unrecognisable. The structure on the hill is a radio mast, also completely encrusted in snow and ice. The whole scene looked completely surreal and the aurora added to the otherworldly feel
