This picture was captured a few miles South of Tromso in the Arctic Circle, Norway, on a farm where I stayed for a few days. The night before had been an incredible Northern Lights display, still the best I've ever seen, but after a late night, there was no rest for the wicked and up for sunrise back into the deep snow again.
This scene was just at the rear of the farm; the light around these parts seems to be very different, with loads of pinks and purples often visible in the early and late hours of this sunrise. However, nothing special was enough to give this gorgeous lighting onto the mountains to the rear and pick out all the detail in the snow-laden trees, with the little red hut seemingly perfectly placed to finish the scene.
Despite being the coldest place I've ever been to, Norway is still, to this day, my favourite place I've ever been to, and somewhere I want to explore a lot more.
