Night and Day – Skagsanden beach

Aurora borealis, Skagsanden beach, Lofoten, Norway. 2014.

The saying "the difference between night and day" is commonly used to express how opposite things are. This struck me as I was reorganising the archive of my processed images and came across these two photographs, taken at Skagsanden beach in Lofoten, Norway, a few years back.

This group of islands in northern Norway is well known among photographers for its incredible winter landscapes. The contrast between the dramatic, snow-covered mountains reaching all the way into the sea and long sandy beaches is both fascinating and stunningly beautiful. 

Becoming familiar with a location by day certainly makes it easier to move around and set up at night, for the occasions when the aurora borealis –Northern lights – are looking like they will be active. These two images are taken on opposite ends of the same beach – the drama of the frozen sands contrasting with this simply incredible night-time light show.
